Quantitative Measurements of Cell Mechanics and Cell Adhesion
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 attached to a cantilever and a target cell, functionalized substrate, tissue or biomaterial. Simultaneously, biomechanical characteristics of the cell including stiffness and elasticity can be determined. A large variety of accessories makes the systems highly flexible.
