In this application note, you can read how we, together with three different research groups, used the C-Trap™ optical tweezers – fluorescence & label-free microscopy system to study diverse features associated with cellular mechanics and functions in real time. We present three research-specific approaches using the C-Trap to analyze cell properties in diverse contexts:
How mechanical stimuli or stresses affect cell receptor responses – together with the Javitch Lab at Columbia University in New York,
Filopodia formation and functions – together with the Titus Lab at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis,
Cellular droplet fusion and small components in a multicellular organism – together with the Starr Lab at the University of California in Davis.
We thank all our collaborators for the excellent teamwork and wish you continued success in your future research.
