The MicroSlide™ (patent pending) has three separate wells arranged on the microtiter spacing, two for sample and one for control. All three wells are supplied by a single inlet, a single outlet carries away the perfusate, while maintaining even flow in each of the wells. Continuous flow into the bottom of each well and out the top helps ensure complete replacement of the well contents. An optically clear breathable membrane forms the top and bottom of the wells. The unique breathable lid attaches separately, so that attachment dependent cells can be introduced and contained in the wells before setting up the system for flow.
– The MicroSlide™ is sealed with a gas permeable membrane
– Growth media may periodically be exchanged in the wells without compromising the sterility of the system
– Internal fluid membranes eliminate contamination that may be introduced with the growth media
– The MicroSlide™ may be used in a standard incubator.
