Improve Research Results

with Fluorodish Optical Grade Glass Bottom Culture Dishes

FluoroDish Cell Culture Dish

Get the highest quality images and video for your research with FluoroDish Cell Culture dishes.  Their optical quality glass bottom is as thin as a coverslip, which ensures the least amount of distortions and excellent heat transfer without any of the autofluoresence issues so common with plastic petri dishes.  

Choose the style that suits your application. For live cell imaging, embryo research, and life science researchers working with small sample volumes, the 35mm Fluorodish with a 10mm well (FD3510) is ideal. Researchers working with expensive chemicals or experimental drugs choose the FD3510. They are also an excellent choice for microinjection applications, because they are designed with the lowest access angle for easier insertion of a micropipette during cellular microinjection. Fluorodishes are also available in 35mm (FD35) or 50mm (FD5040) sizes for cell culturing applications. For better adhesion of neurons, try the 35mm Fluorodish that is coated with poly-D-lysine (FD35PDL).

Cited in 575 reference articles (in the NIH PubMed Central® alone), our optical grade, glass bottom dishes are unique in the marketplace and conform to strict quality control standards.

When you need quality glass bottom cell culture dishes with less optical distortion, excellent UV transmission, low cytotoxicity and guaranteed sterility, order WPI Fluorodishes. 

  • Optical quality glass bottom for shorter working distances, larger numerical aperture and higher magnification
  • Non-fluorescent glass so you can discern weaker signals
  • Allows the use of immersion objectives
  • Flat bottom optimizes heat exchange
  • Less optical distortion and superior UV transmission
  • Low cytotoxicity adhesive to ensure cells' survival
  • Individually packaged and gamma sterilized
  • Multiple sizes and designs to suit your application
  • Optional Poly-D-Lysine coating for neurons
  • Dishes designed for low volumes or large growth areas


Optical Grade Glass Bottom for Exceptional Imaging Quality 

The FluoroDish™ bottom glass has superior UV transmission (30% transmission at 300 nm, compared to less than 7% for the most popular German glass). Stringent quality control ensures that glass thickness of the petri dish bottom is 0.17 ±0.01 mm. That is as thin as a coverslip. The thin glass lets you use a higher magnification so you get the highest possible image resolution. Glass avoids the problems of inherent autofluorescence present in plastics and yields a higher signal-to-noise ratio by avoiding interference.


Specially Formulated Low Toxicity Adhesive

FluoroDish™ uses a specially formulated adhesive that is optically clear, durable and with extremely low toxicity. Tests by an independent laboratory have shown that the 96-hour survival rate of rat embryos typically exceeds 95% when kept in a FluoroDish™.
