Microrheology experiments with IMPETUX’s exclusive patented technology
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.
SENSOCELL to study mechanical properties of neurons during C. elegans locomotion
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
Measuring forces, deformation and mechanical properties of cell nucleus with SENSOCELL
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.
Collaborations to carry out cutting edge research
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...
