Heater/ Cooler for C. elegans Pack

Live imaging icon

Embryos, larvae & adults live-imaging

Agar pad free moving, imobilized embryo mounting

Compatible inverted and upright microscope

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

CherryTemp ultra-fast temperature controller can perform temperature shifts in less than 10seconds with +/- 0.1 °C precision. Go down to 5°C for microtubule dynamic control or up to 45°C for heat shock analyses. Change from 15 to 26°C back and forth for ts mutation imaging in live. Dedicated protocols co-designed with our customers.

Compatible with HR microscopy, fits all major brands and microscope models (upright and inverted configurations).
Easy handling, fast mounting on a microscope stage: don’t miss your key cellular events!

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.”
