Quantitative Measurements of Cell Adhesion and Cytomechanics

Our CellHesion® products quantify single cell-cell and cell-surface interactions under physiological conditions. This ground-breaking technique, known as single cell force spectroscopy (SCFS), measures the interaction forces between a living cell bound to a cantilever and a target cell, functionalized substrate or biomaterial. In parallel, cytomechanical characteristics including stiffness and elasticity can be determined. A large variety of accessories makes the systems most flexible.
