New insights into Cas9 off-target activity

The paper “DNA stretching induces Cas9 off-target binding and cleavage” was just published in Nature Structural and Molecular Biology. Congratulations to all the authors! In this paper, scientists at the MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences and AstraZeneca studied how CRISPR-Cas9 differentiates between on-targets and off-targets. They used the C-Trap®…

New insights on the formation and dynamics of membraneless organelles using C-Trap™

Congratulations to Dr. Priya R. Banerjee and his research group at University at Buffalo, who just published their paper in Biomolecules! In the paper titled “Molecular crowding tunes material states of ribonucleoprotein condensates” they investigated how entropic forces contribute to the formation and dynamics of membraneless organelles. Using their C-Trap…

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…

Investigation of the Integration of AFS™ with Digital Holography Imaging

The research article "Digital holography as 3D tracking tool for assessing acoustophoretic particle manipulation" has recently been published in Optics Express Journal. Congratulations to all the authors! By making use of the AFS™ chip, Cacace et al. (2017) investigated the integration of digital holography (DH) imaging in AFS™ devices to enable label-free 3D tracking of multiple…
