CellSoft™ 100mm Round Dishes
Cells sense soft!
CellSoft™ culture dishes are available in 100 mm diameter pre-coated in a specially formulated silicone elastomer softs ubstrate. Moduli stiffness ranges from 1-80 kPa. CellSoft™ Soft Substrate culture dishes come untreated or with covalently bonded proteins to improve cell attachment(Table 1). Flexcell®recommends that users culture their stock cells on a given stiffness substrate and matrix coating and conduct their experiment on the same type of surface. This way, the cells do not experience “substrate shock” moving from one stiffness and matrix coating to another. CellSoft™ 100 mm round culture dishes include a Spillguard™insert, which helps users keep fluids inside of the dish and are an ideal size to passage cells. Users can repeatedly trypsinize and replate cells on the CellSoft™, matrix-coated surfaces up to three times.
