Atomic Force Microscopy - AFM
Investigation of surfaces down to the nanoscale
Flex-Ana by Nanosurf
AFM is a label free technique for materials science and biology, allowing the investigation of specimens in air and in liquid.
The Nanosurf Flex-ANA system is designed to investigate the topography and nanomechanical properties of materials such as metals, polymers, cells, tissues, scaffolds and gels.
In combination with the Zeiss Axio Observer Z1 and a microfluidic system, it is intended as a dynamic tool (FluidFM) for single cell and colloid manipulation, investigation of affinity between biomolecules and nanolitogrphy.
Key features and benefits:
- Real-time data collection and analysis
- Topographical and nanomechanical testing of hard and soft surfaces
- Manipulation at the nanoscale including injection and extraction in/from cells and tissues
