Optical stretching (with acoustophoretic prefocusing) of cells and biomimetic cellular systems – giant unilamellar vesicles and protein-bearing vesicles
We use optical trapping, in some cases combined with acoustophoretic prefocusing, to manipulate and stretch biomimetic systems of cells. Our focus is to investigate elastic properties of cells, and of biomimetic model systems.
