Optical Tweezer (OT) systems operate via the use of a laser beam to create piconewton force over a focal point. This radiation pressure is huge enough to trap certain microscopic sized cells or particles. The capabilities of an OT system enhanced research in the biomedical and biological aspects. In this project, certain applications of the OT system will be demonstrated via the use of LabVIEW and MatLab. These software will allow the user to initiate single or multiple cell trapping as well as conduct manipulation tasks. This report will emphasize on the feasibility of using trapped cells to manipulate foreign particles. Furthermore, a list of foreign particles will also be provided in details to enhance the opportunity of future work in this area.
