LUMICKS brings novel tools for dynamic single-molecule and cell avidity analysis to market, enabling scientific researchers across biology and medicine to unlock new types of experiments. Our leading instrument, the C-Trap®, can be used to “catch” single molecules and expose them to precise mechanical forces. You can, simultaneously, visualize the molecule and the manipulation process with correlated, highly sensitive fluorescence microscopy. Our customers use it to study DNA processes or molecular “engines” processing the scaffolding structures of a human cell. LUMICKS’ systems are currently in use in opinion-leading labs across the globe, including Stanford, Johns Hopkins University, Tsinghua University, NIH, Max Planck Institute, TU Delft, and Imperial College London.

We also provide the z-Movi®, the only instrument that can directly measure the overall binding strengths between cells, known as cell avidity. This new technology, which uses acoustic waves to separate cells, improves the investigation of previously unexplored avenues in basic and translational research. It offers a crucial parameter that highlights key immunotherapeutic properties, e.g., antigen presentation, antibody binging, vaccination, immunological synapses, and cell adhesion.
