Made of biocompatible material using no glues, consequently no cells are harmed
Compatible with all staining and fixation solvents
Microinjection of cells using a µ-Dish 35 mm, low. A glass microinjection capillary is connected to a micromanipulator directly on the stage of a confocal fluorescence microscope. The low walls of the µ-Dish 35 mm, low allow for easy access of the cells with the capillary.
Live cell imaging of Dictyostelium discoideum (DdLimE-GFP mutant) in the µ-Dish 35 mm, low. The image is an overlay of brightfield and fluorescence microscopy showing the recruitment of the LIM domain-containing protein E towards the pseudopodia. Objective lens 20x/0.5, Zeiss LSM 510, scale bar = 20 µm.
Lid with Locking Feature for Minimized Evaporation
All ibidi µ-Dishes are equipped with the special lid locking feature. The locking position minimizes evaporation and thereby provides excellent conditions for long-term studies in a non-humidified environment. Gas exchange (carbon dioxide, or oxygen) during cell culture is maintained thanks to the gas-permeable plastic material of the dish.
TIP: Use the locking feature only if minimal evaporation is required (e.g., outside incubators, non-humidified microscopy stages, etc.).
