Cytosurge and Nanosurf have a long-standing and successful history together in establishing FluidFM® system solutions. This has resulted in over 40 publications generated by 30+ systems in top universities around the globe. Cytosurge is proud to announce that this successful partnership has now been further strengthened into a Premium Partnership delivering new, future-oriented and customer-driven FluidFM AFM solutions. This includes enhanced software, advanced hardware and nanopipette improvements providing the best possible FluidFM experience to end-users with a Nanosurf AFM.

FluidFM Premium Partners go a step further by fully integrating FluidFM into their AFM software leading to highest ease of use and throughput, while at the same time enabling advanced experiments such as nanolithographic printing of liquids in complex patterns. Nanosurf has integrated FluidFM into their Nanosurf FlexAFM – the result is the Nanosurf Flex-FPM which allows a whole range of exciting applications in single-cell biology and nanoscience.

This Partnership with Nanosurf is the first of a series between Cytosurge and leading AFM manufacturers, designed to make FluidFM available to as many AFM users as possible.
