Lumicks – Manipulate and Study Protein-Droplet Dynamics and Properties in Real Time to Understand Phase Separation

  • Lumicks phase separation of proteins using optical tweezers

    This application note introduces you to a new approach that correlates optical tweezers and the latest imaging techniques to study phase separation properties in real time. Based on four recent publications in the field, we show you how you can use the Lumicks C-Trap Optical Tweezers – Fluorescence & Label-free microscopy to investigate the assembly and disassembly of droplets and the properties that can lead to the pathological solidification of these structures.
