Acoustic Tweezers Help Characterize Cell Interactions | Medgadget

Posted on

Researchers at Duke University created an acoustic tweezer system that can precisely manipulate cells and particles. The device can be used to study the interactions between cells, for instance by precisely selecting two cells in a sample and bringing them together gently to study the adhesion force between them. This could be useful in discovering the affinity between cancer cells and other cell types, as a proxy for studying metastasis, or the interaction of immune cells with cancer cells.
