AFM Applied for Interdisciplinary University Research
JPK Instruments, a manufacturer of nanoanalytic instrumentation for life sciences and soft matter research, reports the use of their Nano Wizard AFM system at the University of South Australia for smart wound healing, plant toxicology and novel methods of nanoparticle characterization.
Quantitative Imaging mode delivers data on cell elasticity/morphology complemented by force spectroscopy performed on the chosen substrate. The ability to work on temperature-controlled liquid immersed samples assists polymer material investigations. JPK's tip-scanning approach is essential for combined fluorescence/AFM imaging and the company's Top View Optics allows accurate tip positioning on opaque samples such as porous silicon. The instrument has proven a versatile addition to a multidisciplinary group.
