This bottom has a thickness of 170 µm (+/–5 μm) and is made of D 263 M Schott glass. It has been specifically developed for TIRF, super-resolution microscopy, and single molecule microscopy.
More information: Glass Coverslip bottom.

*Please note: The ibidi Glass Bottom Dish 35 mm has a #1.5 glass coverslip bottom with a thickness of 170 µm (+20/–10 µm).

Product with standard glass slide bottom

Glass Slide
The bottom of these products is a standard glass slide with a thickness of 1 mm. After mounting using the coverslip technique, the products are suitable for upright and inverted microscopy.
More information: standard glass slide.

Sticky surface for the application of your own substrate

Sticky
These products are without a coverslip, but have a sticky surface for the application of your own specific substrate. After removing the protection foil, you can stick any substrate of your choice to the bottom.

Non-adherent surface for spheroids and suspension cells

Bioinert
The Bioinert surface of these products completely inhibits cell-surface interaction and is ideal for the short-term and long-term culture and microscopy of spheroids, organoids, embryoid bodies, and suspension cells. Bioinert is coated on the ibidi Polymer Coverslip, which provides excellent optical properties for high-resolution microscopy.

Optimized for inverted microscopy

Inverted Microscopy
These products are used with inverted microscopy techniques. The cells are observed through the bottom of a cell culture vessel. For successful inverted microscopy, the bottom must have the highest optical features, which are provided by the ibidi Polymer Coverslip and the ibidi Glass Coverslip.

Optimized for upright microscopy

Upright Microscopy
These products are used with upright microscopy techniques. The cells are observed from the top through the lid of a petri dish or a coverslip.

Suitable for adherent cells

Adherent Cells
These products are optimized for the direct culture of many adherent cell types and various cell-based assays.

Suitable for spheroids and organoids

Spheroids and Organoids
These products inhibit cell attachment and are optimized for assays with organoids, embryoid bodies, and spheroids.

Suitable for suspension cells

Suspension Cells
These products inhibit cell attachment and are suitable for assays with suspension cells.

Suitable for 3D cell culture

3D Cell Culture
These products are suitable for three-dimensional (3D) cell culture (e.g., in a gel matrix).

Suitable for single molecule detection, TIRF, and super-resolution microscopy

Super Resolution
These products are optimized for single molecule detection, TIRF, and super-resolution microscopy techniques, such as STED, SSIM, RESOLFT, PALM, FPALM, and (d)STORM.

Suitable for immunofluorescence assays

Fluorescence Microscopy
These products are suitable for fluorescence microscopy, e.g., immunofluorescence assays.

Suitable for cell culture under flow

Flow Assays
