Abstract

Micro robotics are developed and applied to life-science for advancing this research field. In particular, force measurement methodology of the tissues or single cell have much attention, because the mechanical stimulus is important factor of the histogenesis and cellular differentiation. Furthermore, evaluation of stiffness of organelle is also important for understanding several phenomena in cell. Therefore, we focus on cell and cell nucleus in this study, and reported these stiffness measurement methods and evaluated result.
