The Temperature Control Unit is a separate unit that connects easily to the DanioVision Observation Chamber. It controls the exact temperature of the water surrounding the well plates in the Observation Chamber. This way, you prevent temperature changes, without the need to work in fully climatized rooms.
Temperature in zebrafish studies
Temperature is a crucial element in zebrafish research. Even a slight temperature change can influence the health of your subjects, leading to invalid results. The temperature during your trials also influences the behavior of the animal, so you want to be able to control it and make sure it is the same between trials.
Even temperature distribution
The DanioVision Temperature Control Unit is a flow-through system: water flows evenly underneath the well plate at the temperature of your choice. The temperature is the same all throughout the well plate.
The Temperature Control Unit allows you to setup trials that last several days.
