CultureWell™ Removable Chambered Coverglass
CultureWell™ with removable chambered coverglass – ideal for cell culture and fluorescence imaging applications
The 2 x 8, 16 chambered coverglass is like a chambered slide with the imaging advantages of a removable coverglass substructure. It is designed with standard 96 well plate volumes and well spacing. The non-cytotoxic silicone well gasket forms a leak-proof seal between the polystyrene upper structure and the coverglass. CultureWell™ Chambered Coverglass is shipped sterile and ready to use.
•The growth surface is No. 1.5 German borosilicate coverglass.
•Inert, non-cytotoxic silicone permits complete edge-to-edge growth of cells.
•Well spacing allows use of multi-channel pipettes for ease and speed of handling
•Cell growth characteristics are optimal due to the use of inert silicone materials and manufacturing process.
•Quality test for non-leakage, cell growth and coverglass removal to ensure consistent results
•Silicone well gasket remains attached to coverglass after separation, allowing wells to be used as reagent reservoirs
•Gasket well design is ideally suited for small volume incubations, in-situ hybridization and immunostaining
•Black well gasket reduces light scatter, enhancing fluorescence applications. The gasket can easily be removed from the coverglass for mounting
•Frosted microscope slides are provided for mounting
