The Coverglass Lid is a cover for the Delta T® Culture Dish to be used when imaging to create an optical surface onto the liquid in the dish. This eliminates the optical effect of fluid motion at the air to liquid surface above the cells that causes the contrast of the image to change. Therefore, when acquiring a series of images in a transmitted light, contrast enhancing mode of microscopy all images will have a uniform contrast.
Forming an optically flattened glass-to-media surface on the top of the cells eliminates this problem. The Coverglass Lid fits loosely on the Delta T® Culture Dish and supports a 1 mm x 22 mm coverglass in the center of the field 3mm above the specimen. The Coverglass Lid is reusable and helps the Delta T® bridge the gap between an open dish and a closed system environment. The Coverglass Lid is made of 304 stainless steel, autoclaveable, and available with or without perfusion. This item and/or the Heating Culture Dish Cover are nearly essential for multi-user facilities.
