µ-Slide III - 3in1, polymer bottom

  • Fluidic assays with up to three different liquids
  • Cell sorting with laser traps
  • Fluidic focusing of inner lane

Technical features

  • 3 channels ending in 1
  • Microfluidic bi-directional gradient generator
  • Fully compatible with the ibidi Pump System and other pumps
  • The flow is always laminar
  • Contains a millimeter scale bar

Flow setup for switchable chemotactic gradients

Gradient steepness at different positions. The flow is generated by the ibidi Pump System.

Overlapping gradients for chemotactical cell trapping. Switching times of some seconds allow fast gradient switching, so that cytoskeletal dynamics can be observed using fluorescence microscopy.
