We are planning to stretch the cells on chambers to observe them after fixation and staining. Do the Strex stretch chambers degrade on the fixation and staining?

If you use acetone or chloroform, the silicone film of chambers may swell a little. You have no problems with methanol. Tip: Splicing the silicone chamber film into approx. 5 mm x 5 mm makes your work easier. You can observe good images putting the cell plane side onto the cover glass.
