The perfect tool for fully automated nanomechanical data acquisition and analysis
The Nanosurf Flex-ANA system is an automated solution for AFM-based nanomechanical analysis. It is designed to investigate the nanomechanical properties of materials such as cells, tissues, scaffolds, hydrogels, and polymers on multiple or large samples in an easy-to-use fashion.
Key features and benefits
|Real-time, automated data collection and analysis|
|Proprietary algorithm to cope with large variations in sample height|
|Ideal for nanomechanical testing and force mapping of soft, rough, and sticky samples|
Automated force spectroscopy and nanomechanical analysis on:
|Soft and sticky materials|
|Tissue or corrugated surfaces|
|Transparent or opaque samples|
|Diagnostic research samples|
