Nanomanipulation Videos
In this video JPK's NanoTracker optical tweezers platform manipulates a single DNA molecule using the two optical traps.
This video shows the bead manipulation of red blood cell (RBC) using optical tweezers from JPK Instruments. A RBC is fixed to the floor of petri dish by two traps, where the third trap is used to stretch the cell membrane.
This video shows how the JPK's multi-channel laminar flow cell is used along with the NanoTracker optical tweezers platform.
This video from JPK shows an optical trap which can be used to pull membrane tethers from live cells.
This video from IBM, made with carbon monoxide molecules on a surface and an STM, holds the Guinness World Records™ record for the World's Smallest Stop-Motion Film.
If you have been looking for a reason to get an iPad and the AZoNano iPhone App wasn't enough, how about this. With this App from PI you can control your hexapod as easily as playing a basic computer game
If you ned to manipulate samples, devices or biological materials in light microscopes, electron microscopes or FIB's, or if tweezers are not suitable, then you should consider miBots by Imina Technologies. These nanomanipulators can operate over large areas untethered and are to work under vacuum conditions.
This video demonstrates a single source nanoparticle deposition system from Mantis Deposition.
Ami Chandi from AppNano talks to AZoTV at emc2012 in Manchester, UK
On September 28, 1989, Don Eigler became the first person in history to move and control an individual atom. Shortly thereafter, with the help of a custom-built microscope, he and his team spelled out the letters I-B-M using individual atoms, signaling a quantum leap forward in the field of nanotechnology.
This video shows the JPK's NanoTracker optical tweezers that are used for the versatile manipulation of single microtubules in conjunction with simultaneous sensitive fluorescence microscopy.
This video shows the NanoGen Trio nanoparticle sputtering system from Mantis Deposition Ltd.
This video shows the changing of fluorescence filters by optical tweezers from JPK Instruments.
Guillame Boetsch from Imina Technologies talks to AZoTV at EMC 2012 in Manchester.
This playlist contains all of AZoTV's interviews with exhibitors at the MRS Fall Meeting 2012 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, Massachusetts. These videos give a fantastic overview of the impressive array of equipment on show at the exhibit from some of the top names in materials science.
This video shows the JPK's NanoTracker optical tweezers platform is used for the versatile manipulation of single biomolecules, simultaneous to sensitive fluorescence microscopy in a JPK's microfluidics flow cell.
This video shows the manipulation of red blood cell by optical tweezers from JPK Instruments.
A robotic micro-assembly process relies on several thousand flagellated bacteria acting as micro-workers to build a pyramidal structure. Work presented at IROS '09 by Sylvain Martel and Mahmood Mohammadi from the NanoRobotics Laboratory, École Polytechnique de Montréal, Canada.

This video shows the manipulation of macrophage cell by optical tweezers from JPK Instruments.
This video from JPK shows the number of optical traps generated from a single laser source.
This video shows the pulling of membrane tether from the macrophage cell by optical tweezers from JPK Instruments.
Dr Mohan Ananth, Senior Director of Marketing and Product Management with Carl Zeiss Microscopy, gives us an overview of the new ORION NanoFab product.
In a recent paper published in the journal Science, IBM researchers describe a new milestone in nanotechnology: the ability to measure the force required to move individual atoms. Their findings are an important step for understanding what types of atoms are best suited for building different kinds of nanoelectronic devices, based on how strong or weak of a bond they can form on different surfaces.
Like something straight out of science fiction, MIT researchers have created a way to manipulate tiny objects using a 'tractor beam' of light. The video shows individual cells being moved to spell out "MIT". Read More

This video shows the transportation of red blood cells (RBCs) using optical tweezers from JPK Instruments. A RBC is captured and manipulated using four time shared traps.
Dr. Graham Duncan and his team at the University of Strathclyde explain how they use Dip Pen Nanolithography (DPN) in their research. In particular they are looking at cells and other biological systems to gain a better understanding of how the human body works. Their work has huge potential and enormous benefits for the human race.
