FlexAFM FluidFM Option
FluidFM combines the unique possibilities of nanofluidics by Cytosurge with the positional accuracy and force sensitive of the atomic force microscope to provide a whole new level of control and application possibilities in single-cell micromanipulation and beyond.
The FluidFM Option is an exclusive add-on to the Nanosurf FlexAFM and features:
- A comprehensive package consisting of a fully integrated intuitive control software, a liquid dispensing/pressure control unit, and consumables such as liquid tubing and different microfabricated hollow cantilevers, optimized for specific tasks.
- 3 Operating modes: (1) dispense & deliver, (2) inject & extract, (3) pick & place.
- Unsurpassed pressure, volume, force and position control for low volume local fluid delivery/collection or object manipulations.
- A multitude of new applications in the field of single cell biology, biosensors, nanopatterning, printed electronics, optics, etc.
The FlexAFM Inverted Microscope Option is a prerequisite for using the FluidFM Option!List of published articles
