I took the supernatant off and tried to resuspend the cells with PBS and then performed my classical viability ...

Temperature Variation/Cell Culture Exoeriment

... fluctuations is a must. Does anyone know of a good technical solution for this set up? I can't think of what to use other than heating plates. Also to clarify I'm heating the cells through the plastic, ie putting a heater underneath the 35mm dishes.
