For [.sup.3]H-thymidine labelling index analysis (which determines cells in the S phase), HeLa cells were seeded into round coverslips which were in 24-well plates at a density of 2x104 cells per well and incubated for 24 hrs.
Freshly isolated neutrophils were cultured with enriched iRBCs onto coverslips, and their phagocytic activity was examined at different time points after staining with Giemsa.
MSCs were seeded on coverslips and PLGA scaffolds in a 24-well culture plate in n-MEM supplemented with 10% FBS (HyClone).
To ensure cell viability was not compromised, we cultured ECs on gelatin-coated and SLIPS-treated glass coverslips. By live cell staining and quantification, we confirmed that the SLIPS treatment did not compromise cell viability as the untreated and SLIPS-treated groups revealed no difference in the fluorescence values by staining with calcein AM (Figure 1D).
3T3 fibroblast cells were seeded at 6 x [10.sup.4] cells/well in 6-well microplates containing coverslips (13 mm diameter and 0.13 mm thickness) for sterile microscopy.
Sample preparation was carried out by dipping PBS solution containing cells into a glass chamber, consisting of two sandwiched coverslips glued by two parafilm strips also acting as spacers.
fornicata, while the other 25 individuals were allowed to attach to glass coverslips, and then also sewn into individuals mesh bags.
[sup][15] Briefly, RT4 cells were seeded onto a 60-mm dish containing a coverslip. After treatment, cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde in PBS followed by permeabilization with 0.25% Triton X-100.
We introduce a new method of floating plastic microscope slide coverslips as the substrate for Sommerstorffia attachment.
6.6 Wash an equal number of microscope coverslips, or device substrates, serially in acetone, methanol, and deionized water, and blow-dry with nitrogen.
