Heater/Cooler for C. elegans
Embryos, larvae & adults live-imaging
Ultrafast & precise [10′ sec]
Large range & stability [5-45°C]
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!

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.”
