25 mm X 75 mm Imaging Chamber Flow Cells

Customized chamber slides for cell imaging and microarray applications.

Overall slide dimensions are the same as standard microscope slides. The slide top has inlet holes designed to fit pipette tips from 10-200 µl, or to connect to a Wainamics manifold for simple fluidic experiments. The slide base has pressure sensitive adhesive. Simply remove the protective film on the adhesive and bond the slide to your glass or plastic slides to form an enclosed microfluidic flow cell.

To order your customized slide:

  1. Contact us for a free consultation on your project and we will send you the DXF file for the slide top.

  2. Design your flow channels using the existing holes as the inlet and the outlet. Minimum feature size is 300 µm.  We can help you with this step.

  3. Submit your DXF file for review and approval.

  4. Choose your flow chamber thickness - 50 µm or 140 µm (thicker flow chambers available by special request.).

  5. We will send you 25 slides with your customized flow pattern 2 weeks after our receipt of your order.
