Highly reproducible single-molecule analysis of transient structures of native proteins using m-Trap® dual optical tweezers combined with Raman spectroscopy

A recent publication by Dai et al. in Nature Communications presents an optical tweezers-coupled Raman spectroscopy platform providing tuneable and reproducible surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) measurements. By combining a Raman microscope with the dual-trap optical tweezers and microfluidic flow chamber of the m-Trap®, the scientists were able to characterize three…

New C-Trap® installation at the University of Groningen opens avenues for investigating the conformational cycle of chaperone proteins

We are thrilled to announce the installation of a C-Trap® at the University of Groningen, Netherlands, in the lab of Dr. Katarzyna (Kasia) Tych. The installed C-Trap combines optical tweezers with 3-color fluorescence microscopy, which the team will use to investigate protein stabilities, molecular chaperoning, and conformational regulation. They plan…
