> MICROPATTERNED DISHES

Patterned dish ready to be plated with cells

The micropatterned petri dishes are 35 mm glass bottom petri dishes printed with micropatterns.
They are ready to use, you just need to plate your cells on the glass substrate and observe them on the specific micropattern.

 

> Ready to use

Plate the cells in the petri dish and observe them

 

> High quality cell imaging

Observe the cells through the micropatterned glass substrate

 

> Very stable coating

Can be stored for months thanks to the covalent bond with the glass bottom

The 4Dcell micropatterned dishes are provided into sterile individual plastic bags.

They are sold by 20 or 50 dishes and you can choose the shape of the micropattern and the anti-adhesive coating for each of them.

 

> MICROPATTERNS SHAPES

 

The standard shapes offered by 4Dcell are:

disks

lines

triangles

squares

rectangles

grids

 

Or you can ask for customized shapes.

 

Standard micropatterns sizes go from 10 µm to 100 µm.

Each type of micropatterned coverslip (disks, rectangles, squares, etc.) is arranged as described in the scheme bellow (e.g.: disks).

In each coverslip, there are seven zones with distinct pattern sizes (ranging from 10 µm to 100 µm). There is an eighth zone where all the sizes are placed together.

 

You can also ask for a customized shape that we can design for you.

 

> 4DCELL OFFERS 3 OPTIONS OF COVALENT COATINGS

 

Standard anti-adhesive polymer with the same anti-fouling effect than traditional PLL-g- PEG, but with a more stable bonding to the glass slide (covalent).

Oxidation resistance anti-adhesive polymer which is less sensitive to oxidation and has the same type of covalent bonding to the glass slide.

Long term cell culture anti-adhesive polymer which is the best in terms of anti-fouling treatment and bonding to the glass slide.

Observable by phase contrast microscopy. This is the best option for long term cell culture on micropatterns (more than a week of cell culture).
