In article number 1701136, by Mehmet Cagatay Tarhan and co-workers, MEMS tweezers allow the manipulation of biological samples such as individual microtubules. Bridging between parallel walls, these 25 nm diameter tubular structures can be picked by sharp protruding tips. Motorized stage positions target the location with high precision to place the microtubules carried between the tips. Repeating this pick-and-place cycle, a multilayered microtubule network is generated for kinesin motion in selected directions.
