MatTek glass bottom dishes combine the convenience of standard size 35 mm and 50 mm disposable plastic petri dishes with the optical quality of glass, providing researchers, students, and engineers with vivid microscopic images.
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.
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.
Coatings: MatTek offers Poly-d-lysine and collagen coated dishes.
