Single-Cell Manipulation — May 11, 2016 (8:00 PDT / 11:00 EDT / 17:00 CEST)
One of the challenges in cell biology, tissue engineering, and materials research is quantification of the interaction force between cells or between cells and substrates. The Nanosurf Flex-FPM with FluidFM® technology by Cytosurge is a tool to serially measure interaction forces with picoNewton resolution. The instrument combines the positional and force resolution of a research grade AFM with an innovative microfluidic probe, which can manipulate cells or colloidal beads.
This webinar explores recent advances in single-cell force microscopy with the Flex-FPM. Topics include an overview of the system; recent advances in single mammalian cell and bacteria adhesion; colloidal spectroscopy with exchangeable beads and single cell sorting. Experts answer specific FluidFM® application and instrumentation questions.
