Compatible inverted and upright microscope

Ultrafast & precise temperature shift [10′ sec - 5 to 45°C]

CherryTemp ultra-fast temperature controller is:

  • First software algorithm compensating room temperature variation.
  • Budding and fission yeast live cell imaging. You can now control and observe dynamic events (linked to live temperature changes) to discover unthought mechanisms.


  • Perform temperature shifts in less than 10 seconds with +/- 0.1 °C precision.
  • Dedicated protocols co-designed with our customers.
  • Easy handling, fast mounting on a microscope stage
  • HR microscopy compatible fits all upright and inverted microscopes.

What Users Say About CherryTemp

“The Cherry system is now in full use in my lab and it is working beautifully on its own. The Cherry system is great for stably maintaining temperature on our microscopes”

Dr. Julie Canman Columbia University Medical Center, USA

“CherryTemp rapidly became one of our favorite piece of equipment in the lab. It’s easy to use and works fast and well. The Cherry Biotech team is always super helpful.”


“The Cherry Temp is perfect for use in imaging core facilities. Its design allows its installation on a wide panel of upright and inverted microscopes and easy training of users thus, promoting development of innovating research project. The customer service is always helpful and responsive.”

Dr. Stéphanie Dutertre BIOSIT LABORATORY, France

“CherryTemp allows us to perform temperature shift experiments with unprecedented speed and precision with C. elegans embryos. It is very well designed and easy to use. Moreover, we found the the customer service at Cherry Biotech to be very responsive and competent.”

Prof. Pierre Gönczy EPFL, SWITZERLAND

“CherryTemp was the perfect solution for us to combine precisely controlled temperature stimuli and live cell imaging in our functional studies on thermosensory neurons in C. elegans adult animals. The system is straightforward to use and we were impressed by the responsiveness of the Cherry Biotech customer service team and by the quality of the support provided.”
