PETA Science Consortium International is awarding free equipment to measure transepithelial/transendothelial electrical resistance (TEER). The EVOM Manual for TEER Measurement with the STX4 electrode by World Precision Instruments is the most recent and improved version of the chopstick electrode and is used to measure the voltage (potential difference) and TEER of epithelial or endothelial cell layers cultured on 12- and 24-well permeable membrane inserts.
The deadline to apply for this award is 12 April 2024, and the award winner will be announced in May 2024.
- The Science Consortium will choose one winner based on their proposal’s scientific merit.
- The winner will receive the TEER measuring equipment free of charge.
- Researchers from any sector (e.g. industry, academia, government, and non-governmental organisations) are encouraged to apply.
How to Apply
Please use the form below to submit the following documents by 12 April 2024.
- The applicant’s CV (five pages or fewer) and a brief bio (200 words or fewer)
- A proposal (1,000 words or fewer) addressing the following:
- Do you currently have TEER measuring equipment? If so, please specify the type (including the voltohmmeter and electrodes).
- What do you use or plan to use the TEER assay for (e.g. as an indicator of cell viability or toxicity)? How will the new equipment help with this work?
- Which biological cell system are you using or plan to use the TEER measurement for?
- Describe (in 200 words or fewer) how your work is helping to replace the use of animals in research.
