> COVERSLIPS COATED WITH GELS

Tune the stiffness of the substrate to reproduce the in vivo environment

4Dcell offers polyacrylamide gel coated coverslips for cell culture.  

The range of substrate stiffnesses available resemble the in vivo mechanical properties where cells are naturally embedded. 

Cells can be cultured in an easy and fast way, since the coverslips are ready to be used.

 

> A wide range of stiffness available

From very soft (1 kPa) to very hard (200 kPa)

 

> Ready to use

Plate your cells directly 

 

> Optically transparent

Easy optical observation 

 

> 4DCELL GEL COATED COVERSLIPS FEATURES:

Coated with fibronectin, thus ready to be used 

Compatible with high-resolution optical microscopy systems

Provided in individual plastic bags in a water based solution that keeps the properties of the gels 

Standard size: 24 mm round coverslips (approx. thickness 170 μm)

Compatible with perfusion chambers
