We wish to use sterile culture vessels with a coverslip base and 
I'm looking for any suggestions/comments.  A Confocal Laser Scanning 
Microscope (CLSM) will be used for direct imaging of roots in vitro as
they grow down along the cover-slip base. (Culture vessel will contain
actual seedlings, not root cultures).

We know that NUNC make a suitable product, a Chambered Coverglass 
culture vessel although they are slightly expensive (A$122 for 16, 
product number 136307).  Does anyone know of a similar product through
an alternative supplier which may be cheaper, or have any other 
suggestions we could try?

Any advice is appreciated
