Force-Sensing Optical Tweezers and Optical Trapping
For the first time, dual beam force-sensing optical
tweezers can be seamlessly integrated onto inverted optical
microscopes, combining advanced optical and confocal
techniques such as single molecule fluorescence in an easy-to-use small
Our unique tweezers technology (also known as a Photonic Force Microscope) enables the quantification of molecular, cellular and micro-rheological processes. Applications include molecular motor mechanics, binding/elasticity of DNA and proteins, cell membrane dynamics and particle uptake into cells. The NanoTracker™ is used in material science and soft matter applications ranging from the characterization of mechanical properties such as adhesion, viscoelasticity or deformation, to optical, thermodynamic or nanomanipulation experiments with trapped particles.
JPK's NanoTracker™ technology is set to revolutionize
research in nanoscience, biophysics, polymer science,
biochemistry, cell biology, drug discovery, microbiology,
toxicology and many other fields.
