Products overview

The distinctive optical Tweezers technology developed and commercialized by IMPETUX provides unprecedented power and ease of use for experiments in cell mechanics:

  • Calibration-free force measurements in living cells
  • Active microrheology measurements in multiple spots
  • Automated routines for cell mechanics studies
  • Compatible with phase contrast, DIC or fluorescence
  • Force measurements in tissues (0.5 mm thickness)
  • High efficiency trapping* for low cell damage
  • Maximum control of laser power at sample

* Factor 2-3 compared to traditional technology.

The Optical tweezers platform is composed by two units:


  • the optical manipulation module for the trapping and motion of microscopic samples, and
  • the force sensor module for the measurement of the biological forces involved in the experiment.
