Lumicks C-Trap Edge
Details of the C-Trap system.
The C-Trap system enables you to trap single molecules of DNA or proteins, manipulate them, and measure changes to their structure with high spatial and temporal resolution. Simultaneously, you can visualize a trapped construct and any interacting proteins in real time.
Two independently steerable traps
Force resolution of <0.1pN with a trap stiffness of >0.35 pN/nm (1µm bead) and a maximum escape force of 500pN (4.5µm bead)
- Widefield (100 x water objective)
- TIRF and IRM (100 x oil objective)
- 488, 561 and 633 excitation lasers
- 5 lane laminar flow
- Reusable flow cell for in solution assays.
