"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."Prof. Yves Dufrene, UC Louvain, Belgium
FluidFM® AFM Series
POWERFUL UPGRADE SOLUTIONS FOR AFM SYSTEMS.
The FluidFM ADD-ON greatly extends the application scope of classical atomic force microscopes (AFMs) beyond imaging and force spectroscopy. Take advantage of more than 8 distinctive applications, now accessible thanks to the FluidFM ADD-ON.
The FluidFM ADD-ON is tailored to specific AFM scan heads and brings you the highest flexibility by enabling all FluidFM applications – from single cell adhesion, through nano-injection into single cells and colloidal studies, to nano-printing and beyond.
SUPPORTED AFM SYSTEMS.
The FluidFM ADD-ON solutions have been developed in cooperation with our AFM partner companies. This allowed to carefully consider the geometrical and physical needs of both the FluidFM parts as well as the AFM system.

To facilitate you the entry into the world of FluidFM, together with our AFM partner companies, we created three packages to assure both a smooth FluidFM experience and optimal usability – from the affordable Silver package to the most comfortable and integrated Platinum package.
FluidFM ADD-ON SYSTEM PARTS.
FluidFM probes enabling all FluidFM applications. FluidFM probes are tailored to the geometrical and physical requirements of the specific AFM.
Custom FluidFM probe holder for a specific AFM assuring safe, tight and reliable mounting of FluidFM probes.
FluidFM microfluidics control system (MFCS) to aspirate or release liquids through the FluidFM probe.
Barcode reader to access all relevant probe characteristics, most importantly a unique SEM image of every probe.
A dedicated FluidFM fluorescence camera with a digital filling assistant.
FluidFM CORA software, which gives convenient access and control to all components mentioned above.
The installation is quick and easy: Set the FluidFM ADD-ON up in 20 minutes with the help of this online video.
"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."Prof. Tomaso Zambelli, ETH Zurich, Co-Inventor of FluidFM
