Lab-Tek® Chamber Slidearrow12Lab-Tek® Chamber Slide™ System: Lab-Tek® Chamber Slide™, Lab-Tek® II Chamber Slide™ and Lab-Tek® II CC2™ Chamber Slide™ Products

The growth of various cell types on plastic, soda lime glass and borosilicate coverglass were examined. The surfaces were either unmodified, coated with polylysine, or stably surface modified with non-biological reagents as described by Kleinfield, et al. (1988). All substrates were assembled into Lab-Tek® and Lab-Tek®II Chamber Slide™ products.

Lab-Tek® Chamber Slide™ System

  • Developed for microscopy of in situ cell culture.
  • Cells grow on a standard microscope slide.
  • Media chamber can be removed when culturingis complete.
  • Useful for viral and mycoplasma testing, chromosome studies toxicity tests and immunocytology.
  • Permanox® plastic and glass do not interfere with fluorescent labels.

Permanox® is a special molding resin, which meets the growing requirements of most anchorage dependent cells; also excellent chemical resistance allows for cell fixation and the staining of organic solvents for EM and other techniques. Low oxygen permeation makes Permanox® ideal for anoxic cell growth.

Chamber slides combine a media-containing chambered super-structure with a standard soda lime glass slide or Permanox® plastic slide, sealing the two together with a biologically inert silicone gasket. After cells are grown, the chamber and gasket are easily removed. The slide may then be fixed, stained, cover slipped, and filed with the usual convenience. These slides, once fixed and stained, can be embedded using our Slide Duplicating Mold (Cat. 70170).

Lab-Tek® Chamber Slide™ System all come packed in a sterile sealed tray, 8 units per tray, 2 trays per pack and 12 trays per case.

Lab-Tek® II Chamber Slide Systemarrow12Lab-Tek® II Chamber Slide System

  • Sterile, Chamber Slide™ products have removable, polystyrene media chamber of 1, 2, 4, and 8-well configuration
  • Low fluorescent glass microscope slide (25 x 75 x 1.2 mm) with rounded corners
  • Biocompatible adhesive
  • Polystyrene cover
  • Inert hydrophobic well border printed on slide
  • SuperFrost printed area

Lab-Tek® II Chamber Slide SystemLab-Tek® II Chamber Slide™ products offer optimal surface for excellent attachment and growth of cells, easily distinguished by the blue mark. This design allows for the removal of the media chamber and adhesive from the slide, using a separation device. The blue hydrophobic border is raised slightly and isolates the individual wells, and prevents cross contamination. The slide can be coversliped.

Lab-Tek® II CC2™ Chamber Slide™ products are the newest addition to our Lab-Tek® II Chamber Slide™ family. CC2 shares several similarities with the original Lab-Tek® II Chamber Slide, however, it’s pronounced difference is that the glass growth surface has been chemically modified. This modification provides an optimal surface for growing fastidious cells such as primary neurons or poorly adherent cell lines. CC2 also are non-auto fluorescent making them ideal for fluorescent applications such as FISH (Fluorescent in situ Hybridization). The growth surface remains stable without refrigeration.

Lab-Tek® II and Lab-Tek II CC2™ Chamber Slide™ Systems all come packed in a sterile sealed tray. 8 units per tray, 2 trays per pack and 12 trays per case.
