Ultrafast : 10 seconds temperature shifts
Ultra-precise : long term stability
Compatible with high resolution microscopes
We developed the world’s fastest heater-cooler for microscopy. Originally designed for ultra-fast qPCR military applications, we improved this temperature control plateform to perfectly fit live-cell imaging experimentations.
CherryTemp enables ultra-fast temperature shifts in the 5-45°C range.
You can control in real-time your favorite molecular processes, observe dynamic events linked to temperature on live and discover unthought mechanisms.

UT SOUTHWESTERN, USA
“The Cherry Temp system was essential to acquiring some of our key data on the temperature-dependence of FUS phase separation. The system worked extremely well in these biochemical analyses. It was easy to use and robust, and required only small amounts of material.”

Prof. Dominique Glauser
UNIVERSITY OF FRIBOURG, 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.”

This video shows a real time infra-red camera record of our microfluidic chip submitted to two temperature inputs (8.7 and 43°C). Full stability from one temperature to the other is obtained after 10 seconds and much of the delta
Unprecedented temperature precision and stability
We performed test over 48 hours and our system never deviates from the target temperature (+/-0.3°C) even if you have important room temperature fluctuations. Indeed, our software algorythm take this into account and constantly readjusts the temperature experienced by your cells.
This video shows how to place cells on a standard cover slip and install our themalisation chip on top. This is one method using our spacer/elastomer for an inverted microscope. Our system also fits upright microscopes and you may use agar pads, hanging drop methods, tapes…
Ultrafast temperature shifts
We provide two independent temperature channels to enable fast and stable temperature changes. They are powerful and provide seemless heating and cooling in the 5-45°C range. You can change the temperature in less than 10 seconds, regardless of the delta between the two temperatures.
