Camera Particle Tracking Technology enhances Elliot Scientific Optical Tweezer Systems…

Optical Tweezer System

Camera Particle Tracking (CPT) technology enhances quantitative measurement capabilities in research involving optical trapping and is now available as an option on Elliot Scientific Tweezer systems.

Current systems can only measure the force exerted on one particle, but the CPT technology will enable the collection of data from multiple particles at a higher rate. This will allow for:

  • Convenient trap calibration by thermal analysis.
  • Improved trap stiffness measurements
  • Multiple particle tracking within microfluidic channels
  • Orbital angular momentum measurements
  • Viscosity measurements at several points simultaneously

In December 2010, following selection by the University of Glasgow, Elliot Scientific is the first company to benefit from the University’s Easy Access IP initiative, a scheme designed to freely transfer some of the University’s technical, scientific and medical intellectual property to research and industry for the benefit of all.

Elliot Scientific will demonstrate their first system incorporating CPT technology at the American Biophysical Society Annual Meeting, Baltimore, in March 2011.
