µ-Slide III 3D Perfusion

µ-Slide III 3D Perfusion View larger

A three channel µ-Slide used for the cultivation and perfusion of 3D cell structures

  • Ideal for the long-term cultivation of cells in 3D matrices with an optimal nutrients supply
  • Easy handling: Samples can be placed into the open wells–perfusion can be applied after closing the wells
  • Excellent optical-quality imaging chamber for high-end microscopy

Technical Features

  • Open wells are filled and later closed for the perfusion of the sample
  • Channels allow for easy fluid connection of the wells
  • Luer adapters for easy pump connection (e.g., to the ibidi Pump System)
  • Optimal nutrients supply into 3D structures
  • Observe the sample through the polymer coverslip bottom using high resolution light microscopy

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.

Spheroid Culture

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.
