The first platform to dynamically heat and cool down your cells in seconds during live cell imaging

  • Heater - Cooler

  • Yeast

  • C. elegans

  • Mammalian

You are doing live cell imaging and… Need fast temperature change ? Need cooling down your sample below room temperature ? Need temperature stability ? Use immersion objectives ?

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

Follow in real time the temperature of your cells

CherrySoftWebThe 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 cell when it detects any change in the microscope environment which may affect you sample temperature.

Be sure to get temperature stability and homogeneity of your cells below 0.1°C

lice cell imaging temperature homogeneityCherry Temp uses a structure which confines your biological sample. The confinement as well as 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

Install the platform in 10 minute on any microscope brand

lice cell imaging temperature systemCherry Temp was designed to fit all major microscope brands (Leica,Nikon,Olympus and Zeiss). If you use shared microscope Cherry temp can be installed and uninstalled from your microscope in less than 10 minutes.

In one click, control and change temperature of your cells in seconds

change temperature in seconds during live cell imagingCherry 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.

Image you cell using immersion objective while keeping the same temperature precision

The confinement as well as 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 us to guarantee temperature homogeneity of your cell sample even using immersion objectives.

Forget incubation box , get clean microscope bench and an easy access to your sample

temperature controller for live cell imagingCherry Temp is a platform which fits to your microscope like a stage heater/cooler. It enables you to easily access your biological sample at any moment.
