Atomic Force Microscopy

Instruments & Services

The most efficient and affordable path to bio-nanotechnology expertise.
Our atomic force microscopes and R&D services assist customers in biomedicine to characterize biomaterials and biomolecules. Our versatile AFM platform can be configured for dedicated sub-nanometer imaging performance, correlation with light microscopy, or nanotechnology education as early as high school. With their ingenious simplicity these AFMs deliver exceptional data at a fraction of the cost and complexity of comparable nanoscale characterization tools.

Common Applications

We support a wide range of applications from education and research to manufacturing, and from molecular to cell and tissue biology, with common applications such as DNA quality control, biomaterials and functionalized surfaces, and correlative microscopy of microbes, cells and tissues both dry and in liquid.
