CYTOOchips™ Motility A x18

The CYTOOchip is a 19.5x19.5 mm coverslip with micropatterns transferred by photolithography on a high quality and low fluorescence borosilicate glass. The CYTOOchips are compatible with all inverted microscopes. Grid coordinates are printed on the underside of the chip and enable the user to return to the exact same cell/micropattern over time. These chips represent an ideal choice for high-resolution live cell imaging when combined with CYTOOchambers.

Shipment and information

In order to guarantee a constant quality as well as a long shelf life for our products, CYTOOchips are packaged by 6 in a blister pack sealed in an aluminum bag under inert gas.

The average turnaround time for production is 4-5 weeks.

The CYTOOchips should be stored at 4°C and used before the expiry date indicated on the packaging (6 months from the production date).

Stability is guaranteed for at least 3 months from the date of shipment when stored at 4°C in its original packaging.
