FluidFM® ADD‑ON: Upgrade Solution for AFMs.

To extend the capability of your AFM with FluidFM ADD-ON, contact our partners:


The FluidFM ADD-ON greatly boosts the performance and application range of atomic force microscopes (AFMs)

The FluidFM technology introduces microfluidic properties to the tip of an AFM cantilever. Take advantage of 10x faster single cell force spectroscopy, create patterns by nano-printing at sub-micrometer resolution, or measure single bacteria adhesion in its native environment - all possible now with your Bruker and Nanosurf AFM, and the FluidFM ADD-ON.
