µ-Dish 35 mm, high Glass Bottom

A 35 mm imaging dish with a glass bottom, suitable for use in TIRF and single molecule applications

  • Perfect cell imaging thanks to the low thickness variability of the coverslips’ glass (# 1.5H)
  • Lid with lock position, which minimizes evaporation
  • Suitable for DIC, when used with the special DIC Lid
  • Also available with a relocation grid: Grid-50 / Grid-500

1High resolution microscopy = high magnification (40x - 100x) and high resolution microscopy including widefield or confocal techniques (e.g., brightfield, DIC, fluorescence). The resolution is limited to ~200 nm by the diffraction limit. Does not include Super-Resolution.
Resolution is described as a function to discriminate 2 dots from each other; it is dependent on wavelength and numerical aperture. It is physically limited by Abbe’s law which can only be overcome by Super-Resolution microscopy.

2Super-Resolution microscopy = additional resolution by overcoming the diffraction limit with 63x - 100x oil immersion objectives. Super-Resolution provides a resolution below 200 nm, down to 5-20nm by computational (PALM, SIM, STORM, RESOLVED) and one optical Super-Resolution technology (STED). TIRF is not a Super-Resolution technology.

³DIC Compatibility = The lids are not DIC compatible. Special glass DIC Lids for the µ-Dishes are available separately.
