For the solvents effecting slight changes the user should test the compatibility under the specific application conditions. All tests have been performed at RT. Please be aware that ThinCertTM cell culture inserts are made of PET membranes sealed on polystyrene housings. Therefore, solvents shown compatible with PET membranes in the above table might be incompatible with the polystyrene housing. Please check solvent compatibility with polystyrene

Resistance scale from 1 to 4

1 = resistant i.e. the plastics may be treated with the chemical compound at mentioned temperature over several years without any significant alterations in its physical, optical and chemical properties
2 = limited resistant i.e. the plastics may be treated with the chemical compound at mentioned temperature over several weeks without any significant alterations in its physical, optical and chemical properties
3 = moderate resistant i.e. the plastics may be treated with the chemical compound at mentioned temperature for short time only (several minutes to one hour) without any alterations in physical, optical and chemical properties (mixing and measuring is possible)
4 = no resistance/td> i.e. treating the plastics with the substance named may cause alterations in physical, optical and chemical
properties within seconds
