SecureSlip™ Silicone Supported Coverglass
SECURESLIP™ SILICONE SUPPORTED COVERGLASS
SecureSlip™ Silicone Supported Coverglass is affixed to a thin microscopically transparent silicone base which secures it to culture vessels by electrostatic charge (no adhesive) to prevent movement during cultivation, and cells from growing on the back surface. The silicone also acts as a hydrophobic barrier to isolate liquid reagents on glass.
SecureSlip™ eliminates coverglass overlapping during culture and assay procedures, while also providing an easy way to identify the “cell side” of coverglass. Individual coverglass with silicone backing can be adhered to a petri dish or plate. These can be easily removed one at a time from the dish during culture. Once removed, coverglass can be affixed to microscope slides by means of the tacky silicone backing for routine processing, or placed cell side down onto a drop of reagent using the silicone backing as a cover to prevent evaporation.
Silicone backing removes easily (by peeling) for conventional mounting on microscope slides. During culture, cells may be imaged without interference from the optical grade silicone. Handle SecureSlips™ with forceps by the silicone backing to avoid damage to glass or cells. Recommended use temperature is -62°C to 218°C.

CoverWell™ Imaging ChambersSEARCH
CoverWell ™ imaging chambers are designed to stabilize and support thick and free-floating specimens for confocal microscopy and imaging applications. The reusable press-to-seal silicone chambers form removable enclosures for repeat staining or specimen re-positioning.
CoverWell™ Perfusion ChambersSEARCH
CoverWell ™ perfusion press-to-seal covers form water-tight, multiwell cell incubation or cytochemistry chambers when pressed to coverslips or microscope slides. Reagents can be quickly added and removed through dual access ports without disturbing or cross-contaminating specimens. Chambers are available in five chamber configurations allowing up to eight different specimens or analytical tests on one coverglass.
FastWells™ Reagent BarriersSEARCH
FastWells™ are sticky, flexible silicone gaskets that form hydrophobic reagent barriers around specimens without messy adhesives or special slides. Gaskets may be stacked to increase depth and volume. FastWell™ Reagent Barriers provide rapid isolation of cells and tissues on slides or coverslips for antibody incubations. The barriers remain sealed during agitated washing steps, preventing reagents from spilling when shaken or rocked. FastWells™ peel off quickly and cleanly, leaving no residue to interfere with specimen cover-slipping. They can be washed, autoclaved and reused. The barriers can also be sealed to form incubation chambers using flexible HybriSlip™ covers.
SecureSeal™ Adhesive SheetsSEARCH
These adhesive sheets are made using the same SecureSeal™ adhesive as is used to make HybriWell™ and SecureSeal™ Incubation Chambers. Thin, double-sided tape on a non-woven carrier. Clear, polyester liner on one surface, white clay coated paper on the other. SecureSeal™ Sheets consist of various thickness to choose from. These double sided adhesive sheets measure 7 x 10 inches.
MultiSlip™ Coverglass InsertsSEARCH
MutliSlip™ inserts with 8 (18mm x 18mm) or 15 (12mm x 12mm) No. 1.5 German glass coverglass per insert are sterile and ready-to-use in conventional 86mm x 128mm culture plates. MultiSlips™ are ideally suited for the culture of cells where pretreatment of the glass surface with a biological coating is required. Simply add sterile solution to the plate, incubate and aspirate.
