Single molecule tracking grants researchers the incredible ability to observe molecular interactions and behaviors at the single molecule level. This allows researchers to directly observe how molecules move, organize and travel, collide and react, associate and dissociate, often live and with high spatial and temporal resolution. The ability to do this provides valuable insight into live cell biology.
Live particle tracking1 from Teledyne Photometrics takes this technique and delivers it live, with live statistics. The ability to perform particle tracking live on the camera is a fantastic tool to give early insight into the behaviour of moving molecules for single molecule tracking applications. Use live particle tracking to acquire better data – determine whether your molecules are behaving as expected before time consuming data acquisition.
Live particle tracking is available exclusively on the Prime 95B scientific CMOS camera and operates through our Ocular acquisition software. All tools to run live particle tracking are Included In our PVCAM libraries and can be accessed for programming In MatLab, Labview, Python and Micromanager.
