The LCN currently has two JPK CellHesion 200 systems primarily for measuring cell to cell or cell to substrate interactions. It can also quantify cell elasticity and response to mechanical stress. One system is permanently mounted on an Olympus FV1000 confocal system and the other is situated on an upright optical set up, but can be moved to an inverted set up if required.
- 100um Z range
- Force spectroscopy
- Confocal system also equipped with an incubation chamber to control temperature
