Our breakthrough technology
A novel combination of optical tweezers, microfluidics, and machine intelligence.
By combining the precision of laser optics, the control of the local cell environment provided by microfluidics, and AI automation, Lucero can provide a single-cell manipulation tool that is completely automated, extremely precise, versatile, and simple to use.

How it works
Your target cell is identified by our AI algorithm. Target cells can be static or in flow and do not require prior labeling or dyeing.
Your target cell is trapped by our optical tweezers and can be manipulated in any fashion. Multiple cells can be trapped and manipulated simultaneously.
Your target cell can be isolated using microfluidic wells. Experiments can then be done on-chip, or your target cells can be extracted for further downstream analyses.
What sets us apart
Our system can be integrated with any conventional inverted microscope.
Prep your sample, select your protocol, press “Start”, come back when your experiment is done.
Our microfluidic chip designs can be tailored to fit your exact needs.
No need for background knowledge in laser optics. Our optical tweezers self calibrate – no maintenance required.
Our software can integrate easily into your existing workflow and sync with your data processing.
High-resolution imaging in bright field or fluorescence.
Never miss a thing.
