Membrane Mechanics


Laser trapping of cell membranes combined with direct force measurements will become a keystone in many research fields like morphogenesis or neuronal mechanics. With our optical tweezers platform SENSOCELL™ it is possible to trap, manipulate and obtain the stiffness of cell membranes of diverse biological samples including single cells, cell cultures or even 3D tissues.

  • Trap neuron axons in in vitro or in vivo conditions and manipulate them to determine their stiffness.
  • Perform cell membrane mechanics deformation experiments.
  • Measure the stiffness of cells contact membranes in cell cultures or biological tissues.
