Detailed and quantitative information about structure-function relation, concentrations and interaction kinetics of biological molecules and subcellular components is a key prerequisite to understand and model cellular organisation and temporal dynamics. In systems nanobi-ology, cellular processes are quantitatively investigated at the sensitivity level of(More)
Analytics of single biological cells allows quantitative investigation from a structural, functional and dynamical point of view and opens novel possibilities to an unamplified subcellular analysis. In this article, we report on three different experimental methods and their applications to single cellular systems with a subcellular sensitivity down to the(More)
We used multifocal two-photon laser scanning microscopy for local and selective protein activation and quantitative investigation of intracellular protein dynamics. The localized activation was realized with photo-activatable green-fluorescent-proteins (pa-GFP) and optical two-photon excitation in order to investigate the real-time intracellular dynamics in(More)
Native hyaline cartilage from a human knee joint was directly investigated with laser scanning microscopy via 2-photon autofluorescence excitation with no additional staining or labelling protocols in a nondestructive and sterile manner. Using a femtosecond, near-infrared (NIR) Ti:Sa laser for 2-photon excitation and a dedicated NIR long distance objective,(More)
This paper presents an interactive audio-haptic human-computer interface for controlling an atomic force microscope (AFM) in force spectroscopy experiments on single molecules. The sensor data used are proportional to the force that is applied to a single molecule. These forces are measured in real-time by using the reflection of a laser beam from a(More)
We have developed a new descanned parallel (32-fold) pinhole and photomultiplier detection array for multifocal multiphoton microscopy that effectively reduces the blurring effect originating from scattered fluorescence photons in strongly scattering biological media. With this method, we achieve a fourfold improvement in photon statistics for detecting(More)
A novel hyperspectral imaging system has been developed that takes advantage of the tunable path delay between orthogonal polarization states of a liquid crystal variable retarder. The liquid crystal is placed in the optical path of an imaging system and the path delay between the polarization states is varied, causing an interferogram to be generated(More)
