Microwell Diameter

Multiwell 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 5 mm, 6 mm, or 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.
