Application using CherryTemp

Microtubule depolymerization by cold in Drosophila third instar larval brains

Drosophila third instar larval brains expressing a microtubule marker (Jupiter-mCherry) were mounted on a CherryTemp slide. The sample was initially held at 20°C and then rapidly switched to 5°C. Microtubule depolymerisation was observed for 370 seconds before the sample was rapidly taken back to …Read More…

Drosophila mounting Methods

Protocol for a sample mounting system using mutiple spacers

This video shows how to use multiple spacers according to the thickness of the tissue ot whole organism being imaged. To mount with a CherryTemp chip for thermalization. The spacers prevent evaporation.

Protocol for a sample mounting system using double-side tape

This video shows how to use a double-side tape to create a chamber for your sample, to be pasted to a CherryTemp chip for thermalization. This material prevents evaporation and it is suitable for long term imaging.
