Abstract

The past several years have seen an accelerated development of technologies and methods that enable the non-invasive analysis of single cells. These are vital as single cell studies provide important evidence and deepen our understanding of how networks of cells work and evolve. Exploring the full potential of our dynamic user-interactive optical trapping system (Biophotonics Workstation), we can surround various types of cells with other cells or other microscopic objects, thus studying the relation between confinement and cell growth.
