We are here to help! Submit a project if you need fast results to meet a deadline, to de-risk the purchase of an AFM, or to outsource nanocharacterization projects. We work with your materials, troubleshoot protocols, and deliver data. For advanced trial experiments or milestone-driven projects.

Examples: Advanced sample preparation, nanoscale measurements (< 5×5 um scan size), measurements in liquid, force-distance measurements.

* Advanced probes, substrates, reagents, and equipment at additional fee.
