The discovery of a divergent elasto-resistivity in iron-based superconductors promoted the nematicity to the class of the electronic orders together with superconductivity and density-waves, supporting the intriguing idea of an intimate link among all electronic instabilities. In this work we investigate the nematic phenomenology in different families of iron-based superconductors using a novel technique, which combines a state-of-art setup for Nernst effect measurements with a piezoelectric device for the application of uniaxial strain. By studying the temperature-dependence of the strain-derivative of the Nernst coefficient, we discovered that a Curie-Weiss-like fashion governs also the elasto-Nernst effect, as a fingerprint of strong nematic fluctuations. However, despite the universal diverging behavior, we show that elasto-Nernst and elasto-resistivity are not equivalently representative of the nematic susceptibility, offering a new insight into the nematic puzzle. Moreover, the emerging scenario provides an evidence of a band-dependent nematicity.
