Single-Molecule Workshop at LUMICKS Amsterdam

During June 4-5, a captivating single-molecule workshop was given at the headquarters of LUMICKS in Amsterdam. Throughout the workshop, the participants were introduced to our second-generation (G2 line) apparatus and got the chance to perform multiple investigations on them. We started off with the C-trap™, our optical tweezers-fluorescence microscope, and…

AFS™ installed at Georgetown University

Last week, LUMICKS successfully installed an AFS™ Stand-Alone system in the lab of Assistant Professor Rodrigo Maillard at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. They are experts in optical tweezers, which the group uses to probe and monitor the response of proteins upon force application in real-time. By looking at the conformation, dynamic motion, and stability,…

Investigation of the Integration of AFS™ with Digital Holography Imaging

The research article "Digital holography as 3D tracking tool for assessing acoustophoretic particle manipulation" has recently been published in Optics Express Journal. Congratulations to all the authors! By making use of the AFS™ chip, Cacace et al. (2017) investigated the integration of digital holography (DH) imaging in AFS™ devices to enable label-free 3D tracking of multiple…
