RBC Transportation Using Optical Tweezers from JPK instruments
This video shows the transportation of red blood cells (RBCs) using optical tweezers from JPK Instruments. A RBC is captured and manipulated using four time shared traps.
Strain is applied to the trapped red blood cell held by the four time–shared traps forcing it to assume rectangular shape. In later stages the RBC is forced to assume different kind of shapes using the traps.
