abstract

The corral trap is a novel tool for the solution-based trapping of single fluorescent molecules and other nanoparticles with great potential for applications in ultrasensitive biomedical analysis at the single molecule level. This article describes a general approach for automated trapping based on particle detection in two regions of interest close to the corral trap: the doormat region, which triggers the "opening" of the corral trap, and the trigger region, which triggers the "closing" of the trap. Three different algorithms for rapid particle detection in these two regions are presented, and their execution time is evaluated for different experimental scenarios.
