Elliot Scientific Introduces New Version of E3500 Multiple-Trap Optical Tweezer System

Published on January 26, 2010 at 1:21 AM

Elliot Scientific has recently introduced a new version of the E3500 computer-controlled multiple-trap optical tweezer system with E4100 QPD (Quadrant Photo Detector) force measurement facility. The system utilises two fibre-coupled lasers: one for trapping and the other for the probe beam.

The tweezer was built into a high-end Nikon microscope and a similar system will be demonstrated by our tweezer team at February's Biophysical Society's 54th Annual Meeting in San Francisco. At January's Photonics West, we will reveal our Optical Tweezer Roadmap. A presentation that will detail the future development of this product range, showing the new technologies and applications ahead.
