CoverWell™ Incubation Chambers


CoverWell™ incubation chambers are reusable, easy to apply chambers that attach without the use of adhesive.  CoverWells™ enclose a large sample area with a small reagent volume and preserve kinetic (non-capillary) fluid dynamics for better reagent mixing and lower backgrounds within the chamber for more uniformly sensitive assays. These ready-to-use chambers are designed expressly for in situ hybridization and immunocytochemistry.


  • Eliminate precipitate deposits on specimens by incubating slides and specimens upside down during enzymatic color precipitation reaction
  • Provides an exceptionally secure seal during submerged water bath and/or high temperature incubations
  • RNase and DNase free
  • Easily removed
  • Adheres to wet or dry surfaces
