CherryTemp™ – Temperature Control System for C. elegans

Observe and determine phenotypes that are caused by temperature changes in live C. elegans in real time with one click!

  • Observe, trigger and control ultra-fast cell division events at the embryo stage in C. elegans.
  • Perform temperature shift experiments and image larvae and adult C. elegans.
  • Rapidly slow down subcellular dynamics at the push of a button to observe microtubule and spindle dynamics and protein trafficking.
  • Keep temperature stable below the room temperature (e.g. at 16°C).

C. elegans embryogenesis control. Temperature-sensitive embryo mutants (CYK-4 ts) were examined under the microscope with a CherryTempTM System. The temperature of embryo samples was modified between 16°C and 25°C, resulting in cytokinesis arrest.

Watch how temperature impacts the division of a temperature-sensitive (ts) mutant C. elegans embryo.

Key Features:

  • Ultrafast: 10 seconds temperature shifts
  • Wide temperature range: heat and cool down your samples between 5 to 45°C
  • High Precision: at 0.1°C
  • A plug & play platform compatible with any microscope
