EZSPHERE Microplate 6 well (MPC-polymer coating)
Spheroid forming low adherence plasticware. Cell/protein repellent MPC-polymer coating. Thousands of micro-wells laser-etched into the surface which generates massive numbers of uniform size embryoid bodies.
Micro-well specifications: 400-500 μm ∅, 100-200 μm deep; 2,400 micro-wells per well, 14,400 micro-wells per plate.
The EZSPHERE Microplate 6 well dish is a product manufactured by Asahi Glass Company, for culturing of mammalian cells and the preparation of 3D cell spheroids. Each plate is individually laser-etched and provided in a sterile, ready-to-use format. The plates are made of polystyrene material that is coated with a biocompatible non-adherent surface. Mammalian cells will "slide" to bottom of the wells by gravity and aggregate with neighboring cells according to their biologically programmed narrative. EZSPHERE products are available in a variety of sizes and microwell configurations to suit your particular needs. The plates are an excellent way of creating iPS cell EB seed stocks for transferral to bioreactors such as the ABLE Bioreactor Magnetic Stir System or other suspension culture systems. No other plates or multiwell plate configurations can give you the yields and cost-performance of an EZSPHERE plate from AGC.
