Coverslips for cell culture

Neuvitro Corporation owns the leading technology to provide professional coating with the broadest coverage of substrates, such as PDL, PLL, PLO, Collagen, Gelatin, Laminin, Fibronectin, PDL+Laminin, PDL + Fibronectin, PLO+Laminin, PLO+Fibronectin, PDL+Laminin+Fibronectin, etc. The majority of coated German coverslips available from Electron Microscopy Science, ThermoFisher Scientific, and VWR is actually manufactured by Neuvitro Corporation. Free samples are available.

Why use coverslips for cell culture is better than plates and slides?

It is well known that optically clear German coverslips is required to generate crystal clear confocal imaging. Why? The answers are:

  • Cells attached directly on optically clear coverslip which minimizes the distance between cells and the objective lens so that 60x and 100x objective lens can be used for imaging.

  • The distortion of mount medium is avoided because there is no gap between cultured cells and the objective lens. Mount medium liquid is otherwise required to fill the gap between cells and coverslips if the culture were made on slides or multiwell plates.

  • Coverslips provide freedom of experiment setup to fit any pattern as your wish.


The importance of coating coverslips for cell culture

Cells do not like glass surface. Most cells attach coverslips loosely and detach from coverslip during after culture processes, such IHC staining. Therefore, a clear layer of cell culture substrate must be used to enhance cell culture attachment on coverslips.


The type of coating coverslips for cell culture

Cells are not all the same. Different cells need different culture substrate. Neuvitro is now the only manufacturer in the world capable of providing the broadest range of cell culture substrates, as you can see from the list below:

1.5H 0.170mm +/- 5um High Precision German coverslips for cell culture-imaging

Polyethyleneimine (PEI) is a high strength cell attachment factor for cell culture


Poly-D-Lysine (PDL) coated German coverslips for cell culture-imaging

Poly-L-Lysine (PLL) coated German coverslips for cell culture-imaging

Rat tail Collagen I coated German coverslips for cell culture-imaging

Mouse Laminin coated (on PDL layer) German coverslips for cell culture-imaging

Poly-L-Ornithine Laminin coated German coverslips for stem cell culture-imaging

Fibronectin coated (on PDL layer) German coverslips for cell culture-imaging

Gelatin coated German coverslips for cell culture-imaging

Treated cleaned German glass coverslips with no coating, sterile, ready to use

Round shape German glass coverslips with no coating no treatment for cell culture

Rectangular shape German glass coverslips with no coating no treatment for cell culture

Round shape German glass coverslips for IHC

Rectangular shape German glass coverslips for IHC

Consistancy is critical for image data analysis:

Culture variation is a major problem of invalided data leading to failure of solid conclusion. With Neuvitro advanced coating technology, every single pieces of coverslips were coated uniformly and consistantly to minimize your cell culture variation. Therefore, Neuvitro coverslips can be used as cell culture control in data analysis.
