ibidi : µ–Slide 8 Well Grid–500



ibidi : µ-Slide 8 Well Grid-500

A chambered coverslip with 8 wells and an imprinted 500 µm cell location grid for use in immunofluorescence and high-end microscopy

  • Ideal for locating 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
  • Surface Modification: ibiTreat: #1.5 polymer coverslip, tissue culture treated, sterilized
    Pcs./Box: 15 (individually packed)
    Grid: Grid-500


  • Locating 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
