Optical Tweezers – Fluorescence & Label-free Microscopy

The C-Trap® is the world’s first instrument that combines high resolution optical tweezers, fluorescence and label-free microscopy with an advanced microfluidics system in a truly integrated and correlated solution.


Optical Tweezers

The m-Trap® optical tweezers was developed to lower the price barrier of advanced single-molecule force spectroscopy instrumentation without compromising on performance. It combines high force resolution and stability, with incredible throughput, ease of use and modularity.


Laminar Flow Microfluidics

The u-Flux™ microfluidics system is an integrated solution to reliably perform single-molecule experiments in a laminar flow environment. The system consists of a laminar flow cell, a highly stable passive pressure system and multiple fluidic valves.


Cell Avidity Analyzer

z-Movi®  offers you a fast and simple alternative to optimize and select immunotherapeutic strategies in a highly predictive and reproducible manner. By directly measuring cell avidity, the z-Movi provides you with reliable results in no-time.
