Discover our solutions to unlock the measurement of forces and interactions in biological processes at ASCB Cell Bio 2022!

Dynamic single-molecule analysis for direct, indisputable proof of the molecular mechanisms

Meet C-Trap®, the world's only dynamic single-molecule miscroscope. With the C-Trap®, you can observe your biology as it happens and at the single-molecule level and obtain direct evidence of molecular mechanisms of different biological processes, such as DNA repair, protein folding, cellular signaling, etc.

Scroll down to see an overview of our activities at the ASCB Cell Bio 2022 meeting and secure your seat in one of our live C-Trap demos today!

Nobel Prize-winning technology that enables you – within the same experiment – to:

1) Directly visualize the dynamics of individual proteins in real time.
2) Control and observe the stepwise assembly of the biological complex.
3) Modulate the molecular system to test the model under different conditions.

Understanding the mechanism of action of biological processes requires connecting the structure of biomolecules such as proteins and DNA to their function. Without insights into the interplay of structure and function, it is impossible to understand diseases and discover potential cures at the most fundamental level. To obtain a true understanding of these molecular processes it is key to directly observe the dynamic mechanism at play, know how proteins assemble and work together, and be able to modulate the process.

Here, we present a new dynamic single-molecule technology that provides these key parts of information by visualizing and manipulating biological processes in real-time at the single-molecule level. Furthermore, we will show how this technology – previously only accessible for experts – now gives any scientist the possibility to prove molecular mechanisms by directly quantifying the dynamic behavior of DNA-binding proteins.

We present several examples in which our technology enhances the understanding of DNA repair mechanisms, chromatin structure and stability, as well as DNA replication, and DNA editing tools. We show these single-molecule data are processed in an easy, rapid, and intuitive way. Thus, DNA binding specificity at the base-pair level is directly reported, as well as binding constants from direct visualization of individual complexes interacting with DNA, and accurate quantification of enzymatic processivity and protein diffusion.
