Newormics launches new vivoChips for early stage worms

Early larval stages of C. elegans (L1 to L3 and Dauer) have always been among the hardest to immobilize and image successfully, due to their tiny size and difficulties with using conventional anesthetics and time-consuming mounting methods. To help researchers solve these problems, Newormics is launching two new devices in our vivoChip™-2x range: vivoChip™-2x L1-L2, Read more about Newormics launches new <em>vivo</em>Chips for early stage worms[…]
