µ-Slide 8 well

An open µ-Slide (chambered coverslip) with 8 wells for use in immunofluorescence and high-end microscopy

  • All-in-one chamber slide reduces the number of experimental steps in immunofluorescence protocols
  • Observation of the sample through the coverslip-like bottom using high resolution microscopy
  • Fast and easy sample preparation: No coverslips, no leakage
  • Cost-effective experiments using small numbers of cells and low volumes of reagents

The ibidi µ-Slide 8 well allows standard immunofluorescence protocols to be employed without the use of coverslips in an all-in-one chamber. All steps (i.e., cell cultivation, fixation, staining and imaging) are carried out in the classic open well geometry. After staining, the sample can be observed through the coverslip-like bottom using high resolution microscopy. The closely fitting lid prevents evaporation and allows for long-term assays.


Closely fitting lid
Suitable for high resolution microscopy

Other Possible Applications:

Can be used with Culture-Inserts To test different compound concentrations, e.g., in stem cell development

“The ibidi platforms have opened new possibilities for our group to utilize small volumes of blood to characterize the cell biology of platelets and white blood cells. Moreover, we have greatly benefited from collaborating with the technical representatives at ibidi to discuss ways to multiplex the ibidi platforms to address our experimental questions.”

"I plated and transfected cells on the ibidi µ-Slide 8 well alongside the regular chambers we normally use and they were very good. In fact, I particularly liked the lids which seem more secure than our regular 8-well chambers and the fact that they are 'slide' sized with space for writing a label. Another bonus was the individual packaging which gives me greater confidence on sterility particularly when not all the chambers in a pack of 8 are used at once. So all in all great."

„ibidi slides are compelling!
We tested the open μ-Slides with 8 wells for live-cell super-resolution imaging by dSTORM with SNAP-tags. The quality of the super-resolved images was impressive.“
