Exploring mitochondrial translation processes with the C-Trap®

This month, we find the C-Trap®  featured in Nature Communications in an article published by the lab of Dr. Joanna Rorbach in which they describe mitochondrial translation initiation. The study provides insight into a relatively unexplored, yet exciting field that investigates the properties of mitochondrial ribosomes (mitoribosomes) during translation. Understanding…

Single-molecule measurements with AFS® and optical tweezers reveal progressive assembly of viruses

The research lab of Dr. Gijs Wuite in the Netherlands recently published a single-molecule study in Science Advances, demonstrating the progressive self-assembly steps of viruses. Methods, such as optical tweezers and acoustic force spectroscopy (AFS®), enabled the researchers to study the transient and otherwise hard-to-verify steps associated with viral assembly.…

Screening of cancer targeting TCRs with the z-Movi®

With the quick development of new single-cell analysis technologies it is now possible to identify cancer-targeting T-Cell Receptors (TCRs) in a single experiment. A recent review published in Methods in Enzymology, presented the z-Movi® Cell Avidity Analyzer among the future platforms for the screening of cancer-targeting TCRs. “This technology is…

Controlled ligand gradient through C-Trap® facilitates DSM measurements

A publication in the journal Micromachines describes how researchers managed to control the concentrations of DNA-binding dyes in single-molecule optical tweezers experiments on DNA. They established a controlled concentration gradient with the multi-channel laminar microfluidics system integrated with their C-Trap® correlated optical tweezers and confocal microscopy. The study demonstrates a…
