Our dynamic single-molecule solutions

C-Trap and m-Trap

The world’s first instruments that allow the measurement of forces and interactions at the single-molecule level and in real time.


Unparalleled Optical Tweezers – Fluorescence & Label-free Microscopy

The C-Trap is the world’s first instrument that allows simultaneous manipulation and visualization of single-molecule interactions in real-time.

It combines high-resolution optical tweezers, fluorescence, and label-free microscopy, and an advanced microfluidics system in a truly integrated and correlated solution.
