A µ-Slide with one channel and three wells for culturing cells on a 3D gel matrix with defined flow

Product outline:

  • Create a perfusable cell monolayer on a gel matrix for various flow and shear stress applications
  • Establish and image endothelial barriers under in vivo-like conditions—no artificial filters or membranes
  • Easy handling: samples are placed into the open wells; perfusion is applied after closing the wells


  • Culture of adherent cells on a 3D gel matrix under flow conditions
  • Transendothelial migration studies under flow conditions
  • Establishment and microscopic read-out of endothelial barrier assays (without any artificial membrane)
  • Simulation of blood vessels with endothelial cell culture on a soft substrate
  • Long-term or short-term cell culture perfusion experiments with defined shear stress and optimal nutrient supply into 3D structures
  • Apical-basal cell polarity assays
  • Cell barrier model assays with apical-basal gradients
  • Cell boundary assays without filters or porous membranes
  • Rolling and adhesion assays using leukocytes
  • Inflammation studies
  • Transport studies
