µ-Slide VI 0.5 Glass Bottom


Key Features

A 6 channel μ-Slide suitable for  flow experiments and for immunofluorescence assays

  • All-in-one chamber that simplifies immunofluorescence protocols
  • Homogeneous cell distribution over the channel surface, regardless of handling practices
  • Cost-effective experiments with small numbers of cells and low volumes of reagents
  • Perfect cell imaging thanks to the low thickness variability of the coverslips’ glass (# 1.5H)
