Go beyond in single cell manipulation with FluidFM
FluidFM technology unites the best features of microfluidics and force microscopy by introducing closed microscopic channels into force sensitive probes. With this truly unique combination, FluidFM enables you to go beyond conventional technological boundaries in single cell research, nanotechnology, and biophysics.

It is a great pleasure to see how much momentum the FluidFM has gained in the scientific community. It astounds me how many different FluidFM applications have been already demonstrated, and still think there is much more to explore both technologically (probes, electrical signals, combination with other instruments) and scientifically (biophysical questions), which is where we are focusing our efforts at ETH.
FluidFM is a highly versatile tool with huge potential in the field of single-cell studies. The instrument enables us to address several unanswered questions in the epigenetics field by pushing experimental boundaries.
FluidFM has provided us the chance to detach mammalian cells that were very strongly adhered to the substrate, in a systematic way and without any chemical modification of the cantilever; thus, allowing us to study cell behaviour in their natural state and environment.
FluidFM allows my team to efficiently capture adhesive forces of microbial pathogens and screen for new anti-adhesion molecules. I believe that FluidFM has the potential to shed much light onto anti-microbial strategies.
