Protein filaments have been studied indirectly using various approaches of fluorescence microscopy
in cells and tissues and more directly, using force spectroscopy on single filaments or filament bundles. LUMICKS’ C-Trap® provides for a unique approach which combines the strength of both techniques, to give a truly correlative method of studying and manipulating cytoskeletal filaments.
The Filament Manipulation application note shows how LUMICKS’ dual or quadruple-trap C-Trap® technology can be employed in the investigation of filament interaction and characterization.
