Microwell Diameter

GB Glass Diameter Chart

For most applications, a 14 mm glass microwell is sufficient. Choose the 20 mm diameter microwell to maximize viewing area, or a 10 mm diameter if your application is cell-limited or to limit media or reagent consumption.


Glass Thickness

For most applications, No. 1.5 is the preferred coverslip thickness, especially for optimizing image quality with high numerical aperture objectives. The No. 0 coverslip gives you the most working distance and may be useful for thicker specimens.
