Benefit from great advantages

temperature-control-microscopy-one-clic-3Monitor the thermalization of your cells in real time

The Cherry Temp platform was developed to enable real time change and monitoring of your sample temperature. Thanks to the unique calibration scheme integrated into the platform, the system is able to adapt  in real time the temperature of your cells when it detects any change in the microscope environment which may affect you sample temperature.

Install the CherryTemp system on different microscopes in 10 minutes

CherryTemp has been designed to fit all major microscope brands (Leica, Nikon, Olympus and Zeiss). If you use shared microscope CherryTemp can be installed and uninstalled from your microscope in less than 10 minutes.

temperature-control-microscopy-immersion-objectiveKeep our unprecedented precision with both air and immersion objective lenses

The confinement of the sample as well as the very short thermal path frees our technologies almost completely from the influence of classical thermal disruptive parameters. This unique structure coupled to our real time calibration scheme enable us to guarantee temperature homogeneity of your cells even with immersion objectives. Learn more

temperature-control-microscopy-one-clic-4One-click change the temperature of your cells

Cherry Temp software enables you to change the temperature of your cells during live imaging in one click. You can also set temperature cycle for long or overnight experiment. We designed the software to be as easy to use as a PCR system.

temperature-heater-cooler-precise-2Ensure temperature stability and homogeneity with a 0.1°C precision

The very short thermal path between sample and thermal fluid frees our technologies almost completely from the influence of classical thermal disruptive parameters.This unique structure coupled to our real time calibration scheme enable them to guarantee temperature stability of your cell sample below 0.5°C.   Learn more

temperature-heater-cooler-stage-2Forget incubation box, clean your set-up and get an easy access to your sample

Cherry Temp is a platform which fits to your microscope similarly to a top-stage incubator. It enables you to easily access your biological sample at any moment. Moreover, with its large 5-45°C range and intelligent calibration, it is self-sufficient: no more incubation box nor objective collar are necessary. Learn more

“Initially developed for PCR military application, the world fastest temperature control platform  for microscopy is now available for cell biology imaging.”


Drug-compatible and temperature-controlled microfluidic device for live-cell imaging (Open Biology, 2016)

Our Partners

support-dumont-labJulien Dumont’ s team use different model systems that range from tissue culture cells to mice, their favorite one to study cell division is still C. elegans. That’s why they were our obvious partners when we needed help to adapt CherryTemp to C. elegans research. Check out Julien Dumont’s team webpage @IJM and their publications that refer to CherryTemp.
