Microwell Arrays

The microwells arrays consist of honeycomb-patterned polymer supported on glass. The glass substrate at the bottom of the microwells can be treated with oxygen plasma for facile modification with self-assembled monolayers, proteins for cell culture, or other surface coatings.

Microwell arrays are ideal for applications in cell culture, cell separations, and low-volume liquid handling.

The microwells are 50-µm deep, with side length of 100-µm.
