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.
How SENSOCELL offers the possibility to address fundamental questions about the mechanobiology of cells
The unique force measuring capabilities of SENSOCELL offer Dr. Krieg, from the Neurophotonics and Mechanical Systems Biology group at the Institute of Photonics Sciences (ICFO) in Barcelona, the possibility to address fundamental questions about the mechanobiology of cells
Researchers from Institut de Ciències Fotòniques (ICFO) , Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG), Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) and University of Applied Science Upper Austria have recently published an amazing Science article in where they show that the nucleus, translates cell shape changes into a deformation signal regulating cell behavior.
Impetux collaborates with several Mechanobiology Research projects. Nucleux is one of them. With an interdisciplinary vision: physics, biology, mathematics and medicine, the project aims to understand the basic mechanisms behind the complexity of the cell nucleus, and...
Microrheology of soft biological samples using SENSOCELL optical tweezers. It is already available an application note where we show how SENSOCELL optical tweezers can be used to measure the viscoelastic properties of soft hydrogels, extracellular matrices or...
