LUMICKS brings novel tools for single-molecule biophysics and cell avidity 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, high-resolution fluorescence microscopy. Our customers use it to study DNA replication 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. We offer you the chance to be part of an important mission: To improve human health by unlocking dynamic single-molecule and cell avidity analysis. With the ever-increasing adoption of our technologies by leading institutes from all over the world, including Stanford, Johns Hopkins University, Tsinghua University, NIH, Max Planck Institute, TU Delft, and Imperial College London, LUMICKS is now expanding its team.
