Labor and drug free age synchronization
Use microfluidics instead of laborious picking, sterilizing chemicals or mutations. Size-based filtering has no detectable effect on animal physiology and longevity. It is a minimum stress method to collect synchronized egg suspension. The kit contains Infinity Chips, syringe, piping, everything needed to load animals from a variety of sources.

AgeSync Kit FAQ
What medium can I use with the AgeSync kit?
We recommend liquid NGM. Other culture media (e.g. M9 or S-buffer) compatible with nematode growth can also be used.
Do I need to grow animals on plates to do synchronize them with the AgeSync kit?
Yes. Animals are grown to young adulthood on agar plates using standard protocols (e.g. as described in Wormbook). Animals at young adulthood (typically older than day 2 from hatching) are transferred into Infinity Chip for life-long culture.
