Manipulating to test the implicated interaction forces
+33 5 61 55 68 37
This system was specially developed to provide detailed characterizations of the properties of living components. Based on the use of light for the capture and movement of objects, this non-invasive technique offers the opportunity to manipulate the organelles within a cell. Optical tweezers also enable the measurement of forces of tension or adhesion, in or between cells. The interferometry system that is coupled to it can rapidly identify, with a nanometric precision, the localization of objects captured by the optical tweezers and refine the measurements of their physical properties. FRET and super resolution systems will soon be implemented in this system.
