NanoTracker fluorescent Microtubule Manipulation from JPK

This video shows the JPK Instruments' NanoTracker optical tweezers that are used for the versatile manipulation of single microtubules in conjunction with simultaneous sensitive fluorescence microscopy. A chemical dye is used for fluorescently tag the microtubules.

The two ends of the microtubules are held and manipulated by two optical traps. The motor proteins bind the microtubules and walk along them by converting chemical energy into mechanical energy.
