EB-DISK

REUSABLE EMBRYOID BODY FORMATION DEVICES

Form countless self-assembled embryoid bodies (EBs) or spheroids with our EB formation devices. We designed the EB-DISKs to facilitate growing large quantities of uniform EBs on a small footprint without requiring much of your time.

The unique microwell design ensures highly reproducible growth of spheroid cultures. EB-DISKs are available in  137, 360 or 948 microwell format so you can easily grow up to 948 EBs in a single culture dish. Best of all? Change the media for all EBs in just a few seconds! Transferring EBs is rapid and gentle too! And if you want, renew and reuse the EB-DISK!

TOP ADVANTAGES

SPACE-SAVING

With the EB-DISKs you can grow up to 948 EBs in a single 60mm dish! If you were to use conventional round bottom microplates instead, you would need 10 plates! Just imagine how much incubator space you can save! Or how many thousands of spheroids you can grow in a single incubator!

TIME-SAVING

Do you think generating EBs is going to be an endless task? With our EB-DISKs you can seed all your cells for up to 948 embryoid bodies in a single step! When you are ready for media changes, you will be able to change it for all EBs at the same time! And finally, when your EBs are ready to be transferred, you will be able to do so in a blink of an eye! No more endless pipetting!

GENTLE

The unique FLIP TO RELEASE transfer method greatly improves the speed and ease of transferring spheroids into larger vessels for further development and growth. It also ensures a much more gentle EB transfer compared to pipetting! Simply flip the EB-DISK over a suitable collection vessel to safely release and transfer as much as 948 spheroids in one shot. No more damaged or lost spheroids due to pipetting! Watch the video below to see how easy it is to transfer EBs!

icon for select format

CHOOSE YOUR FORMAT

We offer EB-DISKs in three different formats so that you can easily grow 137, 360 or 948 embryoid bodies in standard culture dishes. For your convenience, you can further choose between pre-treated EB-DISKs with an ultra-low attachment (ULA) surface coating or follow a simple coating procedure outlined in the user guide to do it yourself. If you want to generate, process and image spheroids without having to ever manipulate or transfer your EBs, our microfluidic HTS-compatible EB-CLARIFY is for you!

icon for reuse circle, recycling

REUSABLE

EB-DISKs are made from a biologically inert, durable and flexible polymer, which is autoclavable!  Once you’ve released your EBs for further processing or growth, follow the simple cleaning protocol outlined in the EB-DISK user guide and rejuvenate the device. That way, you can reuse your EB-DISKs over and over! Say goodbye to wasting countless plastic microplates to generate embryoid bodies!

AFFORDABLE

Thanks to our proprietary fabrication method and in-house production, we can keep our prices low! If you want, you can get even more out of your EB-DISKs by reusing them. Simply follow the rejuvenation protocol in the user guide.

APPLICATIONS

GROWING EBs

Easily grow large quantities EBs. With our EB-DISKs you can grow up to 948 EBs  on a single device. Making it a breeze to change the culture media and transferring EBs when they reach the next stage of growth.

TRANSFERRING EBs

When your spheroids are ready for the next phase of growth, lift the EB-DISK out of the culture dish, then simply flip the disk to transfer the spheroids safely and efficiently into larger vessels for further growth. This makes for a simpler, gentler and much more rapid transfer of your EBs.
