LUMICKS’ C-Trap® adopted by two labs at UBC

We are delighted to announce the installation of two C-Trap® instruments at the University of British Columbia (UBC), Vancouver, Canada, in the labs of Dr. Derek Dee and Dr. Nada Lallous. Derek Dee, Assistant Professor in the Department of Land and Food Systems, focuses his research on the forces that…

Evaluation of protein droplet viscoelasticity with the C-Trap® reveals new material properties

A recent publication in Science describes a new glass-like structural behavior that protein droplets can adopt, regulating their biochemical behavior as they age. Specifically, through rheological measurements using the C-Trap® optical tweezers, the researchers discovered material properties that may help cells respond to a dynamic molecular environment. The findings offer essential insights into the…

Vesicle-like RNA–protein condensates characterized by the C-Trap®

We were happy to find yet another publication from the lab of Dr. Priya Banerjee with results from C-Trap® analyses! This time his lab examined the formation and features of vesicle-like RNA–protein structures, which differ from the more known uniform droplets. Apart from offering new insights to an emerging field,…

Study establishes molecular forces responsible for condensation of ribonucleoprotein-RNA complexes

Researchers investigated the molecular driving forces underlying the condensation and decondensation of ribonucleoproteins using the C-Trap™. Specifically, they showed that sequence-dependent features of the RNA and ribonucleoprotein molecules partially dictate phase transitions. These findings can help scientists further understand the properties underlying eukaryotic liquid-liquid phase separation, or formation of membrane-less…
