Temperature gradient stimulation for cell division in C. Elegans Embryos on chip


Baranek, Sophie; Bezler, Alexandra; Adamczyk, Christian; Gönczy, Pierre; Renaud, Philippe (2010). Temperature gradient stimulation for cell division in C. Elegans Embryos on chip. In: 14th International Conference on Miniaturized Systems for Chemistry and Life Sciences, Groningen, Netherlands, 3 October 2010 - 7 October 2010.

Abstract

This paper reports on a new microfluidic device for temperature stimulation of cell in in-vitro culture. Micro-electrodes in a meander shape are embedded into the microfluidic channels to generate either a temperature gradient through the culture chamber or a local heat spot under specific cells. One promising application is the control of cell di- vision rate. Here we present first results of the synchronization of cell division in a two-cell stage embryos of C. Elegans.
