Abstract
Optical cell stretching provides label-free investigations of cells by measuring their biomechanical properties based on deformability determination in a fiber optical two-beam trap. However, the stretching forces in this two-beam laser trap depend on the optical properties of the investigated specimen. Therefore, we characterized in parallel four cancer cell lines with varying degree of differentiation utilizing quantitative phase imaging (QPI) and optical cell stretching. The QPI data allowed enhanced assessment of the mechanical cell properties measured with the optical cell stretcher and demonstrates the high potential of cell phenotyping when both techniques are combined.
