Technical Features

The Principle of the µ-Slide I Luer Glass Bottom

The Glass Bottom

The µ-Slide I Luer Glass Bottom comes with a thin #1.5H Glass Coverslip Bottom that has the highest optical quality and is ideally suitable for high-resolution microscopy, TIRF, and super-resolution microscopy. To promote cell attachment, a surface coating might be required prior to cell seeding.

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
