Understanding how cells respond to directly applied forces and to passive mechanical stimuli with SENSOCELL force spectroscopy technology
In this work the authors show how the physicial forces drive mechanosensing by applying dynamic force regimes to cells thought different techniques including Optical Tweezers. o measure the forces applied on cells with Optical Tweezers, they use the SENSOCELL force sensor module: Lunam T-40i.
Stochastic force dynamics generated by a Chlamydomonas microswimmer study with IMPETUX’s exclusive patented technology
Here, we share an interesting publication where the authors study the stochastic force dynamics of a model microswimmer algae (Chlamydomonas reinhardtii). For the experimental work, they directly measured the stochastic forces generated by these algae using an optical trap via the photon momentum method.
An interesting project story: the team led by Dr Pere Roca-Cusachs at IBEC is already achieving important goals and performing amazing experiments. They have been doing rheological measurements to understand Cell-ECM interactions and see how they can alter the mechanical properties of the cell cytoeskeleton with SENSOCELL.
Here, we share an interesting preprint from Dr. Betz’s group entitled where the authors use optical tweezers to show intracellular softening, fluidification and decrease of active forces in mitosis that is mediated by a surprising role switch between microtubules and actin.
This 2021 starts with a new preprint available from the Neurophotonics & Mechanical Systems Biology group at ICFO whose main research goal is to understand cell mechanical properties for health and disease on the molecular and systems level using Caenorhabditis (C.) elegans.
The characterization of cell membrane elasticity as a new potential biomarker for leukemia cells with IMPETUX technology
Researchers from the Optics Research Unit at De La Salle University and AIST-Osaka University have recently published and study where they have used a customized optical trapping system from IMPETUX to characterize cell membrane elasticity.
