Ortaç Research Group won “Fund for life science and technologies project awards” hosted by Inovita at Boğaziçi University. The projects entitled “Lazer in vitro fertilization system” and “Lazer cautery system” aims to exploit the unique properties of laser technology for biomedical applications.
Optical tweezers are one of the most effective methods of manipulating micron and sub-micron sized particles. In biological applications, these instruments have been used to trap viruses, bacteria, living cells, organelles and even strands of DNA. We have developed an optical tweezer system for manipulation of mammalian cells. This research activity has been carried out in the frame of a close collaboration with Dr. Ayşe Begüm Tekinay’s group (Nanobiotechnology Group at UNAM, Bilkent University) and EA Technology Ltd. (Turkey).
