On-demand optical immobilization of Caenorhabditis elegans for high-resolution imaging and microinjection

Author affiliations

Abstract

This paper describes a novel selective immobilization technique based on optical control of the sol–gel transition of thermoreversible Pluronic gel, which provides a simple, versatile, and biocompatible approach for high-resolution imaging and microinjection of Caenorhabditis elegans.
