Description

We have developed a portable Biophotonics Workstation that utilizes high-speed spatial light modulation to generate an array of realtime reconfigurable laser-traps making 3D real-time optical manipulation of advanced structures possible with the use of a joystick. Joystick-controlled and optically manipulated micro-platforms carrying nanotools are seen to have potential uses in a variety of micro-biological experiments and they may be functionalized or directly used to perforate targeted cells at specific locations or force the complete separation of dividing cells, among other functions that can be very useful for research in microbiology.
