Re-Defining Application Possibilities in Single-Cell Micromanipulation with the Flex-FPM

The FluidFM Probe Microscope from Nanosurf is a state-of-the-art tool that incorporates AFM and nanofluidics. It redefines control and application opportunities in single-cell micromanipulation and beyond by combining the unique possibilities of nanofluidics by Cytosurge with the force sensitivity and positional precision of the atomic force microscope.

The basics for conducting Fluid Force Microscopy are a FlexAFM scan head with controller, an inverted microscope, hollow cantilevers, and FlexAFM Inverted Microscope Option. The Nanosurf Flex-FPM is an exclusive add-on product to the Nanosurf FlexAFM.
