HoloLid™ has been specially designed for the HoloMonitor® time-lapse cytometer to eliminate image disturbances caused by surface vibrations and condensation inside the cell culture vessel. This HoloLid™ is designed to fit lumox® 96-well plates from Sarstedt (Order no. 94.6000.024). The bottom of this culture vessel consists of an ultra-thin gas permeable membrane, which allows for good gas exchange and excellent image quality. As no further ventilation is necessary, this HoloLid™ has been designed to maximize the imaging area.
HoloLid™ is made of poly(methyl methacrylate), also known as PMMA or plexiglass. PMMA is a non-toxic material often used in medical surgery implants, dentures, etc. It does not contain bisphenol A; a cell disturbing agent commonly present in plastics. HoloLid™ is shipped with a plastic cover that must be removed before use.
