Frequently Asked Questions

What sizes of microwells can you make ?

We can generate any microwell diameter form the size of a single cell (10 μm) up to 2 mm.

How many microwells can you put in one culture surface ?

This can be easily calculated knowing the geometry of your microwells of interest. Learn More

Which size of microwell do I need for the number of cells I want to seed on the culture surface ?

This can be easily calculated knowing the geometry of your microwells of interest. Learn More

What stiffness can you reach with your hydrogel substrate ?

The substrate of our microwells can have a stiffness ranging from 200 Pa to 30 kPa in average shear modulus. Our standard stiffnesses are 200 Pa (soft), 10 kPa (standard) and 30 kPa (Stiff). For custom stiffnesses, please contact us.

Can you change medium without washing the cells/organoids out of the microwells ?

With our proprietary plate design, you can safely change medium without disturbing the cell aggregates or the organoids over the entire culture time.

What is the cell aggregate/organoid size variation from microwell to microwell ?

With our proprietary plate design, the cells are evenly distributed over all microwells. Learn More

Can you make microwells with various shapes?

We can generate any microwell shape you can possibly imagine. Our current design is a miniaturization of a standard 96U bottom plate. For custom geometries, please contact us.
