Paper Abstract

Conventional optical trapping or tweezing is often limited in the achievable trapping range because of high numerical aperture and imaging requirements. To circumvent this, we are developing a next generation BioPhotonics Workstation platform that supports extension modules through a long working distance geometry. This geometry provides three dimensional and real time manipulation of a plurality of traps facilitating precise control and a rapid response in all sorts of optical manipulation undertakings. We present ongoing research and development activities for constructing a compact next generation BioPhotonics Workstation to be applied in three-dimensional studies on regulated microbial cell growth including their underlying physiological mechanisms, in vivo characterization of cell constituents and manufacturing of nanostructures and new materials.
