Products developed in conjunction with Nacer Benmeradi, PhD of CNRS Toulouse and Delta Microscopies, France.

Reticle film has been thoroughly tested with cell culture

  • Good growth of cell culture (equivalent to conventional media)
  • Good adhesion to the substrate without cell polylysine


Physical and chemical qualities

  • Resistant to normal chemicals used in electron microscopy
  • No oxygen retention, compatible resin LR White
  • Good optical quality in bright-field and UV fluorescence
  • Excellent transparency
  • Does not deform at temperatures (positive 100 C and negative liquid N2)
  • Rigid, does not float in the middle of culture
  • Easy to handle and cut with a knife or micro-punch
  • Simple sterilisation using alcohol or UV
  • Detaches easily from resin after polymerisation
  • Low cost


Applications
Light microscopy, fluorescence, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), high-pressure cryofixation.
