Abstract

We present a force sensor with high-sensitivity and high-rigidity using quartz crystal resonator (QCR) for cellular force measurement. We integrated miniaturized QCR load sensor into cantilever utilizing the principal of leverage for improvement of sensing sensitivity. We show the measurement results of the cellular force using constructed sensing system.
