MEASURING CELLULAR ADHESION AT THE CELL LEVEL. 

SINGLE CELL ADHESION 

 

FluidFM Single Cell Adhesion

Boost your Research Productivity.

Cells bind to various surfaces and substrates. Measuring cellular adhesion at the cell level provides valuable insight for many research topics in biology and medicine.

Until now, measuring these interactions was highly complex and time consuming. But with FluidFM technology you can boost your research productivity: Gain unprecedented insights into organ formation, implant surface properties and pathogen pathways.

Simplified Workflows.

Highly automated workflows and our intuitive monitoring software support users in every step of their experiment.

The target cell is selected via the point and click interface and then reversibly attached to the FluidFM probe by applying an underpressure. It is subsequently detached from the surface by retracting the measurement probe, and the resulting adhesion forces are precisely recorded with pN resolution. All force curves are automatically stored and organized for analysis using our advanced data analysis software or custom third-party tools.
