CherryTemp™ – Heater/Cooler System for Mammalian cells

Fast & smooth temperature shifts (5°C – 45° C)


Perform live heat or cold shocks


Compatible with a wide range of HR microscopes


No shear stress for adherent cell lines


Note :
Our standard 24*60 Chip design for CherryTemp is available for short-term imaging.
We look for beta-testers for our Petri dish design (35mm) for long-term imaging.

Temperature changes in less than 20 seconds.
The thermalized area has been splitted in two sub-sections with two distinct thermochromic liquid crystals. The right one is sensitive to cool temperatures (20-25°C) and the left one to cool temperatures (35-40°C). The temperature shift from 20°C up to 40°C can be directly observed at the cell’s location.
Cherry on the cake: you can reverse and go back to 20°C if you wish!

This video is a 1h time-lapse showing some dividing cells in our Petri-dish device as a validation of material biocompatibility and happiness of cells. Cells were put in the device and maintained at 37°C.
We designed a specific chip to adapt our temperature precision technology to the Petri dish standard. The temperature can be controlled, changed while live-observing cells under high-resolution microscopes.

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.”

“The Cherry system is now in full use in my lab and it is working beautifully on its own. The Cherry system is great for stably maintaining temperature on our microscopes”
