Worm Recovery Kit
The Worm Recovery Kit is an add-on to the ScreenChip Phenotyping System that
allows you to retrieve your worms after collecting phenotyping data.
Use the Worm Recovery Kit to :
• Screen and retrieve your worms for a complete population analysis
• Perform longitudinal studies
• Conduct genetic analysis of your worms post-phenotyping
The ScreenChip System was designed to allow the worms to move their head and tail freely while being gently immobilized into the microfluidic chip. Worms are moved in a gentle and controlled manner through the chip and into the Worm Recovery Kit using negative pressure.
How to use the Worm Recovery Kit:
Step 1 : Connect the kit between the ScreenChip System outlet and the vacuum source and proceed as usual.
Step 2 : Collected worm into a 1.5mL epitube.
Step 3 : Pipet up the worms for additional phenotyping assays and/or longitudinal studies.
The Worm Recovery Kit is compatible with most 1.5 mL epitubes.
