What is it for? Use it notably for wound-healing assay & immunocytochemistry experiments. It is very helpful when you are working with super expensive reagents or very rare cell lines, and when you want to test various experimental hypothesis.
No limit! Choose a ready-to-use design (Solo - Quartet - Nonet - Presto - Allegro). Or design your own shapes & stack them freely.

Design your PDMS
Our design process offers total freedom to turn your idea into a PDMS.
We produce it with the highest standards of quality, whether you want 1 or 100 copies
Stack and play
Compose flow channels and chambers, stacking different designs of Stencell
Stick it to a variety of culture labware
So far, it has been successfully stuck on:
Stencell is not glued. It can then be removed to:
Trigger cell migration
Switch from flow chamber to open window
Very useful for wound healing experiments
It is compatible with imaging
These thin sheets of silicone are fully transparent, without autofluorescence
Parallelized and standardized experiments
One multiwell Stencell can perform several experimental conditions
It saves samples and reagents
A few microliters only are required

"Sometimes research needs a high level of versatility. This is exactly what appealed me when I met Vincent, Pierre-Olivier and Aurelien. They were hosted by the Cell Organ-izers joint research laboratory, set up by CNRS and our sister company Alveole. So they naturally turned to us when they decided to look for a partner to release their stencils. We knew that Stencell would be so useful to a lot of researchers who could save reagents and cells while testing new ideas and experimental conditions on small volumes. So we said yes immediately. On top of that, the three of them have proven to be highly reactive and proactive, engaged and enthusiastic. They love as much as we do testing new ideas and suggest others. It was a great pleasure to go through our industrial process together!"
