Removable Chambers for IF
ibidi also provides the easiest and most convenient solution for removable culture wells. These products contain a silicone gasket with chambers for individual cell culture and incubation conditions. The ibidi micro-Insert 4 Wellenables the use of extremely small volumes of medium and cell numbers for cell cultivation. The ibidi Immunofluorescence Chambers, e.g., the 12 Well Chamber, removable, is ideal for long-term storage of samples prepared using the classical “glass slide with mounted coverslip” technique.
Please refer to the overview table for technical details for these products.
Different Protocols Possible when Using the Immunofluorescence Chambers
The technique employed to use the Immunofluorescence Chambers is similar to the standard method. The cells are cultured in the wells of the 3 Well, 8 Well, or 12 Well Chamber’s silicone gasket. For immunofluorescence staining, the user can then employ any one of the protocols shown in the diagram below.
The Immunofluorescence Chambers allow the user to perform up to 12 parallel tests on one slide
The Immunofluorescence Chambers combine a large growth area with a small staining volume (especially the 3 Well Chamber, removable)
All products are sterile and ready to use
Limitations of Removable Chambers
The large wells of the Immunofluorescence Chambers require high numbers of cells for cultivation and staining. To overcome this, ibidi developed a special low volume staining procedure in the 3 Well Chamber, removable.
