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

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.
