Scratch Wound Healing Assay
Cell migration is a crucial step for wound healing. Assays able to evaluate cell migration are very useful to evaluate in vitro wound healing. Scratch wound assay creates a gap in confluent monolayer of keratinocytes to mimic a wound. The protocol of scratch wound is based on few steps: cell culture preparation, scratch wound assay, data acquisition, and data analysis.
