Heater/Cooler system for Bacteria

Stable & precise : long term experiments

Time lapse below room temperature until 5°C

Inverted & upright scopes : custom elements for a perfect fit

Slow down cells mecanisms in real time.

Your cells are precious, and with our system no shear stress is applied on them.


Agar pad thermalization using CherryTemp
An agar pad (1.5%, thickness 1mm, standard preparation) was mounted in a sandwich between the CherryTemp chip and a glass coverslip. Temperature shifts between 20°C and 37°C were applied. A thermochromic paper was placed above and under the agar pad to measure temperature shifts. The thermochromic paper changes to green when reaching 37°C. Time of shifts is reduced to less than 8 seconds with agar pads of less than 500µM thickness. This mounting method would allow to heat/cool bacteria, plant and yeast during live cell imaging. Agarose pads are a standard method for live cell imaging allowing cell immobilization.

“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.”
