COVERSLIPS WITH MICROPILLARS

Measure the force applied by your cells

4Dcell offers 10 mm coverslips with microfabricated PDMS micropillars for cell culture and force assessment. 

The different pillar designs and arrangements fit a wide variety of applications, as traction force microscopy, contractility force and durotaxis. 

Force assessment is done by measuring the deflection of the PDMS pillars in response to the forces applied by cells.  

 

> READY TO USE

Plate your cells directly

 

> A WIDE RANGE OF DESIGNS AVAILABLE

Substrates with high and low density of pillars available and different aspect ratios 

 

> COMPATIBLE WITH HIGH RESOLUTION MICROSCOPY

Easy observation of cells and the effect on the micropillars deflection
