Fig. 1. Lifespan assays are either performed with solid or liquid media. Solid culture systems using agar-based media are a major method for lifespan assays. Liquid culture systems using S-media are widely used for testing the effects of chemicals on lifespan. Synchronized worms at a specific developmental stage are transferred for manual or automatic counting, and results are then analyzed using various statistical tools.
