Instead of using highly skilled technicians to accurately position samples and mirrors for laser microscopy, the Risψ National Laboratory in Denmark has devised a computerized interface that will allow any biologist to manipulate cell-sized objects.

A device that radically simplifies the operation of “laser traps” could let non-experts manipulate microscopic objects more easily. It could provide new research opportunities for biologists and other scientists without expertise in optics, the system’s designers claim.
