Central to the JPK product line is the new NanoWizard®II BioAFM. This is
truly the next generation AFM system for biological and soft matter applications.
It provides state-of-the-art AFM functionality like high resolution imaging,
force measurements, nanomanipulation and lithography, all seamlessly integrated
with advanced optical imaging provided by inverted optical microscopes. A whole
range of fluid-cells, temperature control options and advanced AFM modes make
it extremely versatile for all applications where performance and ease of use
is key. Dedicated modules for advanced optical spectroscopy and tip enhanced
experiments are also available.
To complement the BioAFM techniques, JPK will also promote a range of force
measurement and characterization solutions for the life sciences. The ForceRobot®
offer automation of advanced single molecule force spectroscopy to provide statistically
viable data on ten thousands of measurements in a single batch. Also JPK have
launched the first commercial dedicated optical tweezers and particle tracking
platform, NanoTracker™, a measurement technique with highest temporal
and spatial resolution applied to nanoparticles, biomolecules and cells.
