We are wanting to do some assays on chemotaxis of fibroblasts.  We are
new to this aspect of research and are fairly clueless, even after
looking through the literature,  on where to buy the chambers, how to
set them up and how to run the assays.  The literature generally just
states that "using Boyden chambers."
If anyone could provide me with a source of the chambers, a step-wise
approach to using them and any other simplified information, I would
really appreciate it.

Dear Ray,

May I suggest contacting Falcon / Becton Dickinson ?
<http://www.bdl.bd.com/>  or
They have lots of stuffs for cell migration, cell-cell interaction studies, ...... many multi-well plates and inserts that may interest you.

Hope this is useful info.   :-)

P.S.  I am merely a GradStudent.
One should take a HUGE grain of salt with whatever I have typed above.
Good Luck.   :-)
