Fast temperature regulation for cell biology imaging : publications
Origin of the TempoCell™ fast temperature regulator for cell biology imaging
The first prototype of this fast temperature regulation system was validated in collaboration with UPENN (USA) and Institute Curie (France). Since the first release of the fast temperature regulator, performances, biological and user compliance have been optimized* to enable the ease of use for cell biology experiments on microscope. During the beta testing of the TempoCell™ system, several scientific publications in cell biology certify the power of such a tool for biology.

Biological proof of concept validating TempoCell™ fast temperature regulation system for cell biology
The TempoCell™ fast temperature regulation system has been optimized for high resolution imaging in cell biology research. The ability of the TempoCell™ temperature regulator to quickly modify the temperature of the biological sample under microscope observations has been applied to cytoskeleton polymerization. The compatibility of the TempoCell™ temperature regulation system with high resolution microscopy enabled to study the polarity in fission yeast and mitochondria positioning. The fastness of the TempoCell™ temperature regulation system has been also applied for thermosensitive proteins activation during imaging of cell on microscope.
