Monitor 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.
Keep 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
Ensure 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.

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.”

Cherry Biotech focuses its developments on cell environmental control. Dynamism and precision are our leitmotiv.
Our CherryTemp platform is the reflect of this reality.
Ultra-fast Temperature Shift
Shift the temperature of your sample between 2 temperatures in seconds – just by a click on your mouse
Both Heating & Cooling
With CherryTemp™ cooling is as easy as heating in a broad 5-45°C temperature range – no matter the room temperature!
Stability and Precision
CherryTemp™ ensures perfect temperature stability (@+/- 0.1°C) thanks to its electronic control and real-time software adjustment to the room temperature
Start experiment in minutes
CherryTemp™ is easy to use so you can focus on your research not the instrument
From installation to publication: we are to help!
Julien 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.
