Fiber-Based Dual-Beam Optical Trapping System for Studying Lipid Vesicle Mechanics

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


We describe the mechanics of giant unilamellar vesicles (GUVs) which are manipulated using a fiber-based dual-beam optical trap. We prepare GUVs encapsulating various concentrations and molecular weights of poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) polymer.
