Lid with Lock Position

The special lock feature in all ibidi µ-Dishes enables the user to minimize evaporation. The lock position provides excellent conditions for long term studies in non humidified environments. Gas exchange (carbon dioxide, oxygen) during cell culture is maintained thanks to the gas permeable plastic material of the dish.

TIP: Use the locking feature only if minimal evaporation is
required, i.e., outside incubators, non humidified microscopy stages, etc.
