The screencast on the history of NANOSENSORS AFM probes held by Dr. Oliver Krause has just passed the 500 views mark. You haven’t seen it yet? Have a look at youtube https://youtu.be/5pt0dQ_yX3M
Standard SiN AFM probes may have a lot of advantages for using them in your liquid cell measurements. But they also have their limits when it comes to high topographies on cells or other bio samples due to their relatively wide opening angle and the small 3µm tip height.
By teaming up with nanotools in Germany NANOSENSORS is able to offer you a “spiked-up” AFM tip – a silicon nitride probe with a long (10 µm) spike made of high density carbon grown on top of it – called Biotool XXL.
Customized versions such as other tip lengths or other cantilevers are also possible.

Did you already know that NANOSENSORS offers four different kinds of AFM probes especially designed for use in UHV applications?
For high sensitivity and a good signal to noise ratio these probes are featuring a Q-factor of over 30,000 (up to 50,000) under UHV conditions and a high reflectivity (even at wavelength of over 800nm).
