Sony DADC and SCHOTT Develop Glass-Plastic Hybrid Cell Imaging Slide
10 Oct 2013Sony DADC BioSciences, the world leader in the manufacturing of microstructured polymer products, and SCHOTT AG, an international technology group with more than 125 years of experience in the areas of specialty glass, materials and advanced technologies, have pooled their expertise to develop a novel glass-polymer cell detection slide for imaging of cells. The slide was introduced to the public for the first time at the Biotechnica exhibition in Hannover, October 8 - 10, 2013, and will be the basis for a range of products based on the hybrid design.
“Our engineers designed and developed the glass-plastic hybrid that guarantees superior performance such as flatness, thin chamber design and lowest background fluorescence and is virtually unbreakable. We are certain this product will be embraced by researchers and pathologists who use confocal microscopy,” says Dr. Christoph Mauracher, Senior Vice President of the BioSciences division of Sony DADC.
“This product is a great example of what happens when two companies pool their technologies and come up with new applications for traditional materials. We are very excited about the positive customer feedback we have received and are looking forward to the commercialization of the product through the sales channels of both SCHOTT AG companies and Sony DADC,” says Dr. Reiner Mauch, Head of Business Development of SCHOTT.
