CS16-CultureWell™ Removable Chambered Coverglass

CultureWell™ Removable Chambered Coverglass-CS16, 16 Well, No. 1.5 DESAG Coverglass, STERILE – 8 PACK


CS16 CultureWell™ removable chambered coverglass is a 16-well chambered coverglass cell culture vessel, with 2 x 8 format with standard 96 well plate volumes and well spacing. The non-cytotoxic silicone well gaskets form a leak-proof seal between the polycarbonate upper structure and coverglass. The product is sterile and ready to use. Chambered Coverglass allows high-resolution imaging in the same vessel used for cell culture. The bottom of the wells is No. 1.5 German borosilicate coverglass. Coverglass may be separated from the chambers for mounting fixed cells.

Inert, non-cytotoxic silicone permits optimal edge to edge cell growth.

Cell growth characteristics are optimal due to the use of inert silicone materials and manufacturing process. The inert, non-cytotoxic silicone permits complete edge to edge growth of cells, with a No. 1.5 German borosilicate growth surface. Well spacing allows the use of multi-channel pipettes for ease and speed of handling. Black well gaskets reduce light scatter, enhancing fluorescence applications. Gaskets can easily be removed from the cover glass for mounting.

Coverglass removal is facilitated by using a very simple, single piece device that reliably separates the parts without the need for excessive force or risk of coverglass breakage. Silicone well gaskets leave no residue and remain attached to the cover glass after separation, allowing wells to be used as reagent reservoirs. Components are manufactured and assembled with special orientation features for ease of handling and convenient identification of specimen location after well structure removal. Products have been quality tested for non-leakage, cell growth, and coverglass removal to ensure consistent performance.
