Coverslip holder for culture wellplates
This holder was developed to place and dip a typical size glass coverslip into a 6-well culture plate. The coverslip is used to plate culture cells so they can be removed from the well plate for simpler microscopical observation. The standard procedure is to use forceps to hold the edge of the coverslip when placing and removing from the well plate. This procedure is difficult for both sighted and BVI users.
