Spaceships!

The Heit lab is excited to share our 3D printed “spaceships” with the microscopy community. These are live cell imaging chambers (Leiden chambers) which hold an 18 mm circular coverslip plus enough media to keep cells alive over 24 hours of imaging. These can be easily modified with free CAD software to add features such …
