The Principle of the µ-Slide 18 Well



The Coverslip Bottom

The µ-Slide 18 Well comes with a thin ibidi Polymer Coverslip Bottom that has the highest optical quality (comparable to glass) and is ideally suitable for high-resolution microscopy. It is also available as a sticky-Slide 18 Well without any bottom, or and as the µ-Slide 18 Well Glass Bottom for special microscopic applications.

Find more information and technical details about the coverslip bottom of the ibidi chambers here.



The ibiTreat Surface

ibiTreat (tissue culture-treated) is our most recommended surface modification, because almost all adherent cells grow well on it without the need for any additional coating.

Application Examples:

Multiple conditions on one µ-Slide: For immunofluorescence stainings, toxicological screenings, cell surface coatings.
