µ-Slide 8 Well Grid-500


Key Features

An open µ-Slide (chambered coverslip) with 8 wells and an imprinted 500 µm cell location grid for use in immunofluorescence and high-end microscopy

  • Ideal for locating cells or cell clusters
  • Observation of the sample through the polymer coverslip bottom using high resolution microscopy
  • Cost-effective experiments using small numbers of cells and low volumes of reagents

Special Requirements?



  • Locating cells or cell clusters, e.g., transfected cells for clone picking
  • Counting events per defined area (e.g., for calculating transfection efficiency)
  • Providing a reference structure for cell movements
  • Cultivation and microscopy of cell cultures
  • Transfection assays
  • Fluorescence microscopy of living and fixed cells
  • Live cell imaging over extended time periods
  • Suitable for DIC, when used with a DIC lid

Technical Features:

  • Grid with a 500 µm repeat distance
  • Lettered and numbered fields (A-K; 1-10)
  • Open µ-Slide (chambered coverslip) with 8 independent wells
  • Grid clearly visible in phase contrast and bright field microscopy; slightly visible in fluorescence mode
  • Excellent optical quality imaging chamber for high-end microscopy
  • Compatible with staining and fixation
  • ibiTreat surface for optimal cell adhesion
  • Biocompatible plastic material — no glue, no leaking

We use the μ-Slide 8 Well Grid-500 for tracking experiments of tardigrades and nematodes. We are really thrilled about the product. The scaling of the slide helps us very much in evaluating the movement of the animals during the experiment.

“I have had the chance to try the µ-Slide 8 Well Grid-500 and have been very impressed. I have been using the slides to perform assays with 3D organoid cultures. The µ-Slide 8 Well Grid-500 was very useful and easy for me to monitor my organoids as they grew. I was performing an assay where I irradiated my organoids and monitored recovery. I am very impressed with these products and will be sure to keep in touch if I once again need them in the months to come.
