Dr. Gotthold Fläschner joined Nanosurf in July as Product Manager PicoBalance and Rheology. He has extensive experience in both subject areas - for the past 6 years he was working on these research fields at the biophysics laboratory of Prof. Daniel J. Müller at the ETH Zürich.

In his time at the ETH Gotthold co-developed and established the PicoBalance technique, which is shorthand for measuring the mass of single living cells using a photothermally excited cantilever at a high time and mass resolution. In most recent years, he additionally focused on enabling the same setup to measure the frequency-dependent, mechanical properties of cells.
Gotthold now joins Nanosurf to help to bring these novel technologies to laboratories around the world.
The Nanosurf family would like to extend a warm welcome to Gotthold.
Dr. Fläschner was interviewed for D-BSSE News after he was awarded the ETH Medal for his outstanding dissertation. Read it here
