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…

Researchers study the viscoelasticity of human cells as a response to external cues using the high-throughput AFS®

A recent publication in Small introduces you to the value of acoustic force spectroscopy (AFS®) to study the viscoelastic properties of individual cells in high throughput. The authors describe how they used this “plug-and-play” instrument to measure mechanical cell properties upon external cues seamlessly. Romanov et al. specifically assessed how alterations to…
