Our Customers testimonials

Prof. Michael Rosen


“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.”
