Abstract
A cell manipulator capable of (1) trapping single living cells, (2) making a direct binary contact from a chosen direction, and (3) judging the formation of cell-to-cell adhesion is produced by means of optical trapping in combination with a fixed micropipette. The specificity of the cell adhesive capability is tested with isolated hydra cells, demonstrating a clear difference in adhesive properties between ectodermal and endodermal epithelial cells
