Discover 18 Wells for Cost-Effective Cell Culture and High-Resolution Microscopy


Munich, Germany, January 16, 2020 – Perform high-resolution, cost-effective cell culture experiments with ibidi’s latest innovative labware technology, the µ-Slide 18 Well family.

With its thin ibidi Polymer Coverslip Bottom, the µ-Slide 18 Well allows for excellent cell adhesion onto the tissue culture-treated surface. In addition, it has the highest optical quality and is ideally suited for a variety of microscopic techniques, such as widefield fluorescence, confocal microscopy, and DIC.

For scientists who perform special microscopic applications, such as TIRF and super-resolution microscopy, ibidi provides the µ-Slide 18 Well Glass Bottom with a #1.5H D 263 M Schott glass. It is also available as a sticky-Slide 18 Well without any bottom, which enables the researcher to mount any chosen substrate.

The entire µ-Slide 18 Well family is ideal for experiments with small cell numbers and low reagent volumes. The spaces between the individual well walls minimize any well-to-well crosstalk and contamination. Scientists who would like to test one of the µ-Slide 18 Well variations with their own experiments can request free samples at ibidi.com.
