Carl Zeiss PALM MicroTweezers and Force Measurement

PALM MicroTweezers, also known as optical tweezers, is a highly effective and non-invasive method to trap, move or manipulate microscopic particles such as cells, crystals, beads or even sub-cellular structures.

The module allows not only the manipulation of microscopic particles with optical tweezers, but also the quantitative measurement of forces relevant to various disciplines of life science research.

The intuitive software is easy to use and offers flexible functionality and experimental freedom ranging from sperm motility measurements to the characterization of plasma membrane properties, molecular binding forces, or cell elasticity measurements.
