Fluorescence Imaging


All fluorescent or confocal imaging of cells can be done directly in the Organ-Chip. You do not need to disassemble the chip, or isolate the membrane in order to image cells. The membrane is located 0.8 mm from the bottom of the chip and is visually accessible by most objectives on most microscopes, although the use of a long-working distance objective lens is recommended for optimal results. The chip is made of an optically transparent material that will not cause any significant distortion of your signal or image; it does not auto fluoresce.
