  • Experimental Design and Pilot Experiment

This service allows exploring the potential of single molecule techniques. It is dedicated to Users with no prior experience with dynamic single molecule (DSM) approaches who would like to obtain ‘proof of concept’ data necessary to plan future experiments. The unit is equipped with two state-of-the-art instruments: (1) c-trap and (2) c-trap edge. The c-trap relies on confocal scanning, and it is predominantly used for imaging in solution. C-trap edge has an option to switch between wide field fluorescence and TIRF. In addition, c-trap edge allows for label free imaging based on IRM, which makes this instrument ideal for imaging close to the surface. The Unit can assist in a very broad spectrum of experimental approaches.
