Slide Chamber Workhead

Thursday 17th April 2014

One restriction to using glass bottomed slide chambers with high NA oil objectives for live cell studies is the field of view available. This mounting of the slide in the CO2 controlled, closed chamber prevents the objective from working at the edge of the wells. Murphy’s Law will always position the best cells of interest just beyond the field of view.

With the new Slide Chamber Workhead the objective can travel to the extreme edges of the wells so all cells can be observed.

This workhead naturally maintains the 5% humidified CO2 atmosphere necessary for pH control.
