What is the angle of a FluidFM probe?

FluidFM probes are mounted at an angle such that only the very tip touches the sample. What contact angle is this assuming the sample is flat? 

FluidFM probes have contact angles around 9° to 11° depending on the platform.

  • Bruker BioScope Resolve: 9°  

  • Cytosurge FluidFM BOT: 11°

  • JPK Nanowizard: 10°

  • Nanosurf FlexAFM: 10°

For our AFM solutions, we aim to keep the same default angle which the AFM platform uses for all cantilevers.

Keep in mind that this angle will change if the AFM head itself is tilted. Also, there is a small batch-to-batch inherent angle for each probe. Contact us if you need detailed values.
