The Scientist Magazine features z-Movi®;

We couldn't have put the essence of our z-Movi®; in better words than the author of this article in The Scientist: "Just as music pulls some folks to the dance floor while others remain stuck to their chairs, sound can now be used to pull some cells loose from their substrate while other cells…

z-Movi® featured in Science

Our latest product, the z-Movi®;, has been featured in the latest issue of the journal Science! The z-Movi uses acoustic force manipulation to query the interaction strengths of cells with their cognate binding partners. It is based on a lab-on-a-chip assay that allows the assessment of thousands of cell-cell and cell-ligand interactions…

Strand-Displacement Polymerization by Reverse Transcriptase Investigated using LUMICKS’ u-Flux™

The journal Nucleic Acids Research has recently published the paper "Pausing kinetics dominates strand-displacement polymerization by reverse transcriptase". We would like to congratulate the authors! Malik et al. (2017) used optical tweezers and, among other technologies, microfluidics to study the enzymatic activity of the murine leukemia Virus reverse transcriptase (RT). RT catalyzes the formation of an integration-competent double-stranded DNA…
