SENSOCELL™ – Optical tweezers platform

Specially designed for mechanobiology applications, the distinctive optical tweezers technology developed and commercialized by IMPETUX enables unprecedented experiments in cells and 3D tissues:

  • Perform multiple optical trapping experiments with simultaneous force measurements and active/passive micro-rheology tests inside living cells or 3D tissues.
  • Manipulate individual cells or cell organelles like nuclei, membranes or other native structures while tracking the forces involved in a non-invasive way.

Main features:

  • Ease of use and user friendly control software interface.
  • Multiple optical trapping capabilities with simultaneous force measurements.
  • Calibration-free force measurements in living cells and 3D tissues.
  • Active/passive micro-rheology measurements in multiple spots.
  • Automated routines for cell mechanics studies.
  • Accurate determination of sample position.
  • Compatible with phase contrast, DIC or fluorescence imaging.
  • Optimal trapping efficiency* to prevent 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 (Cygnium™ G-422) for the optical trapping and motion of microscopic samples.
  • The force sensor module (Lunam™ T-40i) for the measurement of the biological forces involved in the experiment.
