"I used the µ-Slide 8 Well in the glass version and in the plastic version with ibiTreat. They were perfect for my experiment—I was performing live cell imaging on 3D cell culture. I found that the Matrigel adhered very well to both slides. The coverslip thickness of the base resulted in superb imaging. Additionally, I noticed that the lid was very secure compared with other chamber slides I have used in the past. I am very happy with the product and have recommended it to other colleagues.”
