Studies of cell-matrix, cell-cell interaction or angiogenesis on different matrices require simultaneous comparison of read-out parameters from differently treated companion cells. The culture conditions (cell number, temperature and volume of culture medium) in different chambers are not completely equalized using conventional methods. It has been reported that cells growing in different environmental conditions may exhibit different proliferation patterns [P. Tracqui, J.W. Liu, O. Collin, J. Clement-Lacroix, E. Planus, Global analysis of endothelial cell line proliferation patterns based on nutrient-depletion models: implications for a standardization of cell proliferation assays, Cell Proliferat. 38(June (3)) (2005) 119-135]. Herein we describe an innovative chamber, which could resolve this problem by significantly improving the standardization of experimental conditions. The chamber was manufactured from a standard cell culture well by its division with a septum into two sections. We utilized the chamber and recently developed topological analysis to examine the effects of glycated matrices on the capillary-like network formation by endothelial cells. Glycated Collagen I resulted in dose-dependent changes to all measured topological characteristics of the capillary-like network, such as the number of branching points, number of meshes and total capillary length. These differences were observed only in neighbored compartments coated with different matrices, but not in the compartments coated with the same matrix. The novel chamber brings an opportunity for better standardization of experimental conditions and simultaneous observation of different experimental groups, reducing the possible effect of any systematic error.
