The Stimulus Preference Chip allows you to perform highly quantitative chemotaxis and odortaxis phenotypic assays with precise microfluidic control by restraining a worm with minimal immobilization so the worm can freely behave. The worm can choose between two separate stimulus streams with different chemicals, foods, odors, or temperatures.
The nematode is held in place by a restraint that aligns the longitudinal axis of the body with the border between two laminar fluid streams, leaving the animal’s head and tail free to move. The content of the fluid streams can be manipulated to deliver step gradients in space or time. The Stimulus Preference Chip can be used a stand-alone product.
