C-Trap™ Installed at FOM Institute AMOLF

LUMICKS is happy to announce another C-Trap™ installation in the Netherlands: at FOM Institute AMOLF in the Tans Biophysics lab led by Professor Sander Tans.

Prof. Tans will use the C-Trap™ to study the mechanisms by which chaperones act to achieve native protein folds. A recent paper in Nature (see also News & Views) shows how they already used optical tweezers to study this, but from now on they will also be able to add local information by visualizing their results with the correlated fluorescent microscope! We wish them all the best with the C-Trap™ and his research.
