Click-In System

The Click-In Sys­tem is a mul­ti­func­tion­al and flex­i­ble sys­tem of var­i­ous insert plates for the fix­a­tion of dif­fer­ent cell cul­ture ves­sels on xy-stages and scan­ning stages at inverse micro­scopes. The Uni­ver­sal Mount­ing Frame KM or MX, or the Insert AM serve as base frames.


  • Mul­ti­func­tion­al and flex­i­ble sys­tem for the fix­a­tion of cell cul­ture ves­sels on xy-stages and scan­ning stages (cut-out 160 x 110 mm) on inverse microscopes
  • Wide range of appli­ca­tion and sim­ple handling
  • Firm fix­a­tion and sta­ble posi­tion­ing of the cell cul­ture ves­sels dur­ing the observation
  • Base Frames: Uni­ver­sal Mount­ing Frames KM or MX, or Insert AM
  • Local CO2 and O2 gassing with the suit­able components


Advan­tages in com­par­i­son to the con­ven­tion­al Uni­ver­sal Mount­ing Frames:

  • Use of var­i­ous dif­fer­ent types of cell cul­ture vessels
  • Quick change of the cell cul­ture ves­sels, which can also be insert­ed and taken out togeth­er with the insert plate
  • Firm posi­tion of the cell cul­ture ves­sel by clamp­ing springs in the frame and in the Z-direction by means of spring clips (easy to assem­ble or disassemble)
  • Cost-efficient alter­na­tive to other Uni­ver­sal Mount­ing Frames
  • Custom-specific designs are pos­si­ble anytime

Application Examples:

Setup of the Click-In System: The Universal Mounting Frame KM (or MX, or the Insert AM) serves as a base frame into which multiplates and different insert plates can be clicked in. The cell culture vessel can be inserted and taken out separately or together with the insert plate. Optional CO2-Incubation: In combination with a CO2 control unit, the pH-value in the medium can be kept at an optimal level.
