Introducing SENSOCELL: Optical Tweezers for Mechanobiology

📅DATE: October 22, 2020
Time: 19h CET (Paris, GMT+2)

SENSOCELL is an optical tweezers system, designed for mechanobiology studies in living cells and 3D tissues. It allows manipulating and deforming cells as whole or even endogenous structures such as the cell membrane, the cell nucleus, vesicles and other organelles while tracking the in vivo biological forces involved thanks to its unique direct force sensor technology.

SENSOCELL can be used for challenging cell studies such as: cell micro-rheology, nucleus mechanotransduction, cell membrane mechanics, molecular motor activity and cell-cell interactions and many more. More information about the system and its applications can be found on our website.

In this webinar we will introduce the system, answer your questions and show some application examples including the latest data acquired with SENSOCELL on microrheology and cells nucleus indentation tests. The webinar will last 45 minutes.

The webinar will be conducted and presented by:

  • Oriol Nos Aguila, PhD – CEO at Impetux
  • Vincent Renaud, MSc – Sales Application Engineer at Axiom Optics
  • Nese Didem Temeltas, MSc – Sales Application Engineer at Axiom Optics


Who should attend this webinar ?

Scientists and researchers interested specialized in cell mechanobiology or single-molecule studies or just curious scientists interested in optical tweezing and manipulating really small things.

We are looking forward to your attendance.
