Chamber Slide and Chambered Coverglass

Seed, incubate, fix and stain, all on one slide

Your research requires unique and specific solutions. With a comprehensive range of chamber slides, surfaces and formats to choose from, you can select the best fit for your imaging applications, while ensuring results you can trust.

Thermo Scientific plastics offer the most comprehensive portfolio on the market today for cellular imaging analysis.

Chamber slides are designed for growth, fixation, staining and microscopic examination of cultured cells on a single surface with a removable chamber.

  • 1, 2, 4, 8, and 16 well formats
  • Permanox plastic, glass, soda-lime glass, and CC2 glass slides available
  • Medical grade silicone gasket for Lab Tek. No removal tool needed.
  • Biocompatible adhesive for Lab Tek II. Chamber removal tool is included.

Chambered coverglass with lids are intended for high magnification examination of living cells using an inverted microscope.

  • 1, 2, 4, and 8 well formats
  • #1.0 and #1.5 borosilicate coverglass
  • Non-removable chambers

Coating Chamber Slide and Chambered Coverglass with Extracellular Matrix (ECM)

Have you ever experienced these problems with your cells on chamber slides?

  • Initial cell death after seeding
  • Detachment of cells during washing steps
  • Spontaneous differentiation
  • Unusual morphology and behavior of the cells
If you answer yes to either of the above, then you should consider coating the chamber slides with specific ECM.

Flask on slide

Ideal for cell karyotyping using single cell autoradiography or single cell immunofluorescence. Culture your cells directly on the slide and remove flask if desired.

SlideFlask: Employs Nunclon Delta tissue culture–treated polystyrene slide attached to flask structure via ultrasonic weld. Culture area 9cm2/SlideFlask. Suggested working volume 2.5-5.0mL. Compatible with 18x50mm cover glass.

Flaskette: A glass slide with removable silicone barrier. Can be sealed to exclude air which is useful when embedding cells for electron microscopy. Culture area 10cm2/Flaskette. Suggested working volume 2.5-5.0mL.
