GATTA-Cells  GATTA-Cells

The gattacells series supplies you with high-quality standard cell slides. They are manufactured in close collaboration with the Center for Microscopy and Image Analysis at the University of Zurich. Cell slides of the UZH have proven their outstanding performance by being broadly applied and demonstrated by Leica Microsystems and Olympus Europe.

Ready-to-use gattacell slides contain fixed and stained Cos-7 cells for fluorescence imaging (for instance for wide field, confocal, SIM, STED, or dSTORM).

Currently we are offering two versions:

GATTA-Cells 4C

  • Multicolor Cos-7 cells displaying 4 colors
  • Nucleus: DAPI
  • Mitochondria: Anti-Tom20 with Oregon Green 488
  • Microtubules: Anti-Tubulin with TMR
  • Actin: SiR

GATTA-Cells 1C

  • Singlecolor Cos-7 cells
  • Nuclear pore complexes: Anti-Nup with Alexa Fluor 555 F(ab´)2
  • Recommended for STED and dSTORM applications

gattacells are embedded in ProLong Diamond and show high photo stability with shelf lifes of at least 6 months (storage at +4 °C).

For dSTORM applications we recommend powerful laser lightsources
