Fluid Force Microscope is a sophisticated tool that combines AFM and nanofluidics. It redefines control and application possibilities in single-cell micromanipulation and beyond by merging the distinct possibilities of nanofluidics by Cytosurge with the force sensitivity and positional precision of the atomic force microscope.
The prerequisites for conducting Fluid Force Microscopy are an inverted microscope, a FlexAFM scan head with controller, FlexAFM Inverted Microscope Option, and hollow cantilevers. Nanosurf FluidFM is a unique add-on product to the Nanosurf FlexAFM.
The product features of the FluidFM Fluid Force Microscope are:
A compete package that includes a liquid dispensing/pressure control unit, a fully integrated intuitive control software, and consumables like liquid tubing and other microfabricated hollow cantilever types
Offers excellent pressure, force, volume, and position control to allow object manipulations or low volume local fluid delivery/collection
Includes three operating modes, such as dispense and deliver, inject and extract, and pick and place
Provides innovative applications in the field of optics, printed electronics, nanopatterning, biosensors and single cell biology
