C-Trap® installed at University of Zürich

C-Trap installation University of Zurich

Recently, LUMICKS successfully installed a new C-Trap® Optical Tweezers system, with a quadruple trap configuration, in the lab of Professor Ben Schuler at the University of Zürich, Switzerland.

The group of Prof. Schuler uses single-molecule spectroscopy with the aim to understand protein folding, disorder and dynamics. The C-Trap® will be the group’s first experience with optical tweezers. The instrument enables them to measure the force-extension curve and equilibrium dynamics of unfolding protein domains and manipulate molecular interactions between proteins with sub-picoNewton force resolution. We are excited to see the results and wish Prof. Schuler and his team all the best!
