Glass Bottom Dishes

Microscope Applications

A wide range of applications appeared after the introduction of the first magnificent inverted- confocal microscopes. And long before the rise of the confocal microscope, many applications already used the Glass Bottom Dishes, including High Magnification (with High N.A.), Phase Contrast and DIC.

General Laboratory use

Many Laboratories -/Clinics with Microscope (Core) Facilities are major users of the WillCo-dish® Glass Bottom dish "Series GWST-5040" and "Series GWST-5030", because of their design and high tech quality. The final design (50d x 7h mm.) was supported by the Staff of several University Departments and - Clinics. Test certificates, for MEA, LAL assay and SMA are available on request by e-mail.

Scientific Fields

Glass Bottom Cell Culture dishes are used in the fields of Life Science and Environmental Research, Marine-, Micro- , Molecular- and Cell Biology, Cell Culture and Cell Physiology, Biotechnology, Genetics, Anatomy, Neurology, Pathology, Pharmacology, Phorensics and many more.

Microscope Manufacturers

From the very beginning of the design of our WillCo-dish® Glass Bottom Dishes, 20 years ago, we have liaised with the Staff and Representatives of the “big four” microscope manufacturers, Carl Zeiss, Leica Microsystems, Nikon and Olympus. Company Staff, Product managers and Sales Representatives soon recognized the unique design and High Tech quality of the WillCo-dish® Glass Bottom Dishes. Their Representatives now use them in their (Sales) Demonstrations, (In house) Workshops, Scientific Meetings and (International) Trade Shows.
