A perfusable channel µ-Slide with 3 x 7 wells for long-term spheroid cultivation and high-end microscopy

Product outline:

  • Ideal for the long-term cultivation and perfusion of 3D spheroids or organoids on the Bioinert surface
  • Flexible preparation for perfusion: spheroids can be transferred or created directly in the wells
  • Imaging chamber with excellent optical quality for high-resolution microscopy


  • Cultivation and high-resolution microscopy of three-dimensional cell aggregates (e.g., spheroids and organoids)
  • For use with the ibidi Pump System or any other pump device with Luer connectors
  • Perfusion of spheroids for fresh medium supply during long-term cultivation and access to spheroid growth kinetics
  • Spheroid generation directly in the wells
  • Spheroid retrieval for downstream processing (e.g., immunofluorescence, histology, and biochemical assays)
  • Perfusion of cell monolayers (adherent cells), suspension cells, or co-cultures
  • Organ-on-a-chip setups with up- and downstream metabolization
  • Live cell imaging and microscopy of 3D cell aggregates
  • Immunofluorescence staining and high-resolution fluorescence microscopy of living and fixed cells and cell aggregates
