Live Cell Imaging: Establish in Vivo-Like Conditions on the Microscope

Cells react sensitively to changes in their environment. Factors such as temperature, humidity, and CO2/O2 levels significantly influence the outcome of cell culture assays. It is therefore crucial to precisely maintain the optimal conditions throughout the whole live cell imaging experiment.

The ibidi Stage Top Incubation Systems are available for one slide/dish (Universal Fit) and for multiwell plates (K-Frame). They allow for the accurate and reliable control of temperature, CO2 and O2 concentration, and relative humidity during short-term and long-term live cell imaging assays on any inverted microscope.

If additional control of the oxygen level is needed (e.g., in hypoxia experiments), the ibidi Stage Top Incubation Systems, CO2/O2 are the ideal solution.

With fast and precise regulation of important environmental parameters, the ibidi Stage Top Incubators provide stable conditions for live cell imaging directly on the microscope.

Brilliant Images Without Condensation

The Heated Lid of the ibidi Heating System reliably prevents condensation, which can reduce the imaging quality during live cell microscopy.

By heating the lid to a temperature higher than the plate, a vertical temperature gradient is created. This gradient, plus the humidity control, prevent lid condensation of the cell culture dish. The required temperature of the cell environment is constantly maintained.

User Comments

"The ibidi µ-Slides Chemotaxis 2D and 3D have been the key to my research on lymphocyte chemotaxis. These slides have allowed me to track and visualize directional motility in lymphocytes. The generated chemokine gradients are stable for over 24 hours and the viability of the cells is amazingly good, allowing for measurements of chemotaxis over prolonged time frames.

I am also using the ibidi Gas Incubation and Temperature Control Systems, which are robust and guarantee perfect stability. Very importantly, the product developers at ibidi provide a great support for the implementation of their systems. Thanks to ibidi for developing cell imaging products of such great quality!"
