Manufacturer: JPK Instruments, NanoWizard || AFM. Installed 2010.

In-situ imaging in biological/chemical fluids or in air; Measurements at variable temperatures with perfusion possibilities; Large scan field of 100×100×15 µm3 with highest closed loop performance through capacitive sensors. The BioAFM equiped with a number of application modules such as Biocell (allows temperature dependent study of living cells or single molecues in their native environment), ECCell (for electrochemistry study from biomolecules to metal substrates), Kelvin Probe Module (for nanoscale mapping of surface potential distribution) and Heterodyne Thermal Noise Module (for determination of resonance frequencies up to 1MHz with the thermal noise method); sitted on an Accurion i4 active vibration isolation system (isolation performance: >5Hz = 25dB, 94.4% and >10Hz = 40dB, 99%); and housed in a JPK acoustic enclosure for utmost stability and isolation.
