抄録

In prior work, we reported an efficient methodology for cell-sized liposome manipulation using DEP-based tweezers [1]. In this work, we improved the tweezers that was added further precision in the liposome handling. This devise consists of a smooth-tip glass needle and a pair of thin Au-film electrodes. The smooth tip, which is fabricated by melting a finely-pulled glass needle, is able to concentrate the DEP effect. Using this tweezers, we succeeded in capturing, manipulating and positioning single giant-liposomes of various sizes. This device will become an efficient tool for handling single biological particles such as liposome-based artificial cells.
