µ-Slide 8 well, grid-500, polymer bottom

  • Ideal for relocating cells or cell clusters
  • Observation of the sample through the polymer coverslip bottom using high resolution microscopy
  • Cost-effective experiments using small numbers of cells and low volumes of reagents


  • Relocating cells or cell clusters, e.g., transfected cells for clone picking
  • Counting events per defined area (e.g., for calculating transfection efficiency)
  • Providing a reference structure for cell movements
  • Cultivation and microscopy of cell cultures
  • Transfection assays 
  • Fluorescence microscopy of living and fixed cells
  • Live cell imaging over extended time periods
  • Suitable for DIC, when used with a DIC lid

Technical features

  • Grid with a 500 µm repeat distance
  • Lettered and numbered fields (A-K; 1-10)
  • Open µ-Slide (chambered coverslip) with 8 independent wells
  • Grid clearly visible in phase contrast and bright field microscopy; slightly visible in fluorescence mode
  • Excellent optical quality imaging chamber for high-end microscopy
  • Compatible with staining and fixation
  • ibiTreat surface for optimal cell adhesion
  • Biocompatible plastic material — no glue, no leaking
