Photonic Antennas for Biology
The goal of NANO-VISTA is to exploit novel concepts of photonic antennas to develop a new generation of bionanophotonic tools for ultrasensitive detection, nanoimaging and nanospectroscopy of biomolecules, both in-vitro and in living cells.
Innovation and results
Development of a new plug and play accessory implementing fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS) for inverted microscopes and allowing for automated acquisition from multiple ROIs in parallel.
Development of a micro-incubator for live cells experiments with controlled environment and microfluidic control to flow culture medium and specific markers.
