The Principle of the µ-Slide I Luer

The Coverslip Bottom

The µ-Slide I Luer comes with a thin ibidi Polymer Coverslip Bottom that has the highest optical quality (comparable to glass) and is ideally suitable for cell culture under flow and high-resolution microscopy. It is available with different channel heights or as a sticky version without any bottom.

The ibiTreat Surface

ibiTreat (tissue culture-treated) is our most recommended surface modification, because almost all adherent cells grow well on it without the need for any additional coating.

Choosing the Right Channel Height for Flow Applications

Which Experiment Are You Planning?

Low channels are more suitable for flow applications.
High channels are more suitable for static cell culture.

For flow assays with small amounts of medium and high values of shear stress0.2 channel
For a wide range of shear stress0.4 channel
For controlling low values of shear stress < 2 dyne/cm20.6 and 0.8 channels

Influence of Shear Stress on Cultured Cells

Human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) cultured under flow conditions (20 dyn / cm²) in a µ-Slide I 0.4 Luer over 9 days. The primary cells were transduced with the adenoviral vector rAV CMV-LifeAct-TagRFP 24 hours prior to the experiment.
