“The Newormics vivoCube and vivoChip system has revolutionized my imaging days! It’s easy to set up, fits nicely into our space, and is very user-friendly. And it’s so fast! I can image and score a full chip in about 40 minutes!”
Dr. Lotti Brose is a postdoctoral researcher in the lab of Jon Pierce at the University of Texas at Austin. She has been using Newormics’ D1-D5 vivoChips to study HSN neurons (part of the C. elegans egg laying circuitry) in D1-D3 animals. Lotti has been particularly happy with the speed at which worms can be imaged, and is able to reuse her vivoChips multiple times for different batches of worms.

“Newormics deliver on their promises, and have enabled our lab to perform high-throughput imaging in C. elegans. Their system is very easy to set up and use, the worms are very robustly oriented, and the chip is suitable for even high-resolution imaging!”

“I found the L4-YA chip from Newormics extremely effective in immobilizing L4s and adults for live imaging even without supplementing the system with any anesthetics. The imaged worms also seemed to be in good condition when the imaging session was concluded (approximately one hour), which is great in cases where the worms need to be recovered for propagation.”
Nikhil Mishra is a PhD student at LMU, Munich under Dr. Barbara Conradt. Nikhil has been using our vivoCube system and vivoChips for studying L4-YA C. elegans. He is imaging mitochondria using high-resolution microscopy, and studying the effect of anaesthetization in the worms. Nikhil is able to recover his worms from the devices in good condition to culture them further after imaging.
