The Principle of the µ-Slide 3D Perfusion
The µ-Slide 3D Perfusion contains six wells, in which cells can be cultivated in 3D matrices and imaged using high-resolution microscopy. Two of the six wells, respectively, are connected by a channel. For optimal nutrition of the cells during long-term culture, the channels can be connected to a pump for perfusing the wells.
Application Examples Using the µ-Slide 3D Perfusion
3D Matrix Culture
Single cells can be cultured and imaged in a 3D matrix, e.g., a collagen gel.
Soft Matrix Culture
Adherent cells can be cultured and imaged on a soft matrix.
Culture Without Matrix
Adherent cells can be seesed directly on the substrate without any matrix.
Spheroids can be cultured and imaged, e.g., in a gel sandwich.
Tissue Sample Culture
Tissue samples can be cultured and imaged, e.g., in a gel sandwich.
