Four new publications using VAHEAT
Dr. Jaroslav Icha
We congratulate authors of four recent publications that used our temperature controller VAHEAT!
1) David Gross’ lab from LSU Shreveport used VAHEAT for a well defined heat shock of yeast cells and simultaneous live imaging of their chromatin compaction. The study was published in JBC.
2) Mai Tran from Kerstin Göpfrich’s laboratory at the Max Planck Institute for Medical Research in collaboration with Vasily Zaburdaev from FAU Erlangen used VAHEAT for confocal imaging of programmed fission of engineered DNA droplets, confined in water-in-oil droplets or GUVs. Unsurprisingly, the fission process has highly temperature-dependent kinetics. The study published in Small is available here.
3) Sergio Kogikoski Jr., Yan Lu and team from University od Potsdam and Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin used VAHEAT to measure surface enhanced Raman spectra of their black gold colloidal particles at a broad range of temperatures up to 122 °C. The manuscript is currently at preprint stage at ChemRxiv.
4) Liz Birchall, Christopher Tuck and colleagues from the Centre for Additive Manufacturing at the University of Nottingham used VAHEAT in their study for evaluating their printable fluorescent thermal sensor based on CdSe/ZnS quantum dots. In the range from 30°C to 60°C.
We are happy that the VAHEAT device helps in such a broad range of temperatures and microscopy experiments from live cell imaging, DNA nanotechnology to colloids, nanodiamonds and more.
We are always open to demoing the instrument for you on site or online!
