The Z326-MPCA combination carrier by Hermle is the ONLY accessory available for the centrifugation of chamber slides and dishes.
Until now, centrifugation of these common vessels required researchers to invest in creating their own. This was time consuming, expensive, and in some cases unsafe.
The revolutionary design of the Hermle Z326-MPCA is the solution, and is EXCLUSIVE to Hermle/Benchmark.
The Z326-MPCA features three slots for chamber slides, as well as, two round positions to secure 35mm and 60mm dishes.
To use, simply insert the carrier into a Hermle microplate rotor. Two are included for proper balancing.
Centrifugation of chamber slides and petri dishes have multiple applications, including:
Inducing contact of bacteria or viral particles with cells (usually for the purpose of infection and consequent imaging)
Inducing contact between cultured cells and particles (nanoparticles, beads, non-soluble reagents)
Treatment/washing of cells cultivated in suspension
Also useful for certain experimental microscope slide techniques
