BTX Glass Microslides are used for cell fusion, somatic cell nuclear transfer, plant protplast fusion, hybridoma development and embryo manipulation applications.
They are available in 4 gap sizes, 0.5, 1.0, 3.2 and 10 mm. The 0.5 and 1.0 mm microslides produce a divergent field of energy ideal for efficient embryo fusion, while the 3.2 and 10 mm slides provide a homogenous field for high fusion rates of hybridoma cells.
The Microslides are designed to easily fit on a microscope stage to allow easy observation of the alignment of cells during electrofusion. The Microslides are composed of a glass slide and two strips of stainless steel (round wire or rectangular bar) set in a plastic petri dish.
USE OF GLASS MICROSLIDES WITH THE ECM 2001 OR ECM 830 ELECTROPORATION SYSTEMS
In this example, the ECM 2001 generator is connected using the sequence of cables and adapters illustrated below, then connected to the microslides. Using the ECM 830 r Gemini X2, all accessories plug directly into the unit using the 45-0216 Micrograbber Cables
