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…

Impressions from LUMICKS’ Training Session for new users

As part of our commitment to support scientists through all the stages towards their first publication using our instruments, we often organize dedicated training sessions. In the case of the lab of Prof. Shi at Tsinghua University, this was in the form of a 5-day advanced training, providing in-depth knowledge…

m-Trap™ installed at ShanghaiTech University

LUMICKS is thrilled to announce the first m-Trap™ installation at ShanghaiTech University in Shanghai, just a month after the launch of our landmark high-resolution optical tweezers system. Assistant Professor Bo Sun acquired the m-Trap™ within a year after a C-Trap™ was installed in his lab. Dr. Sun believes that conventional ensemble techniques are often not sufficient…

Introducing m-Trap™ Optical Tweezers

Today, we release the m-Trap™. Watch the launch video! The m-Trap is the first dedicated optical tweezers platform specifically designed to enable scientists to manipulate and measure at the single-molecule level with ultra-high resolution, stability & throughput, at an unprecedented price. We hope that introducing this instrument will bring us closer to the LUMICKS dream of truly unlocking single-molecule analysis.
