Introducing the Nanosurf FluidFM® probe microscopy

The established microfluidic tool for nanomanipulation and single-cell biology

FluidFM probe microscopy (FPM) combines the force sensitivity and positional accuracy of an AFM with FluidFM technology by Cytosurge to allow a whole range of exciting applications in single-cell biology and nanoscience.

Nanosurf has the longest experience providing AFM systems with the FluidFM® add-on, as Cytosurge’s initial cooperation partner for this innovative technology – the FlexAFM with FluidFM® system was launched in 2013. FluidFM add-ons are available for the FlexAFM and CoreAFM platforms and a unique integrated FPM solution on the FlexAFM.

Pioneering research within reach

  • A tool to conduct original research at the frontiers of science

An integrated solution with optical, force, and fluidic control

Optical cell selection by fluorescence properties (left image). The cantilever was gently placed on the cell under force control and trypsin administration was monitored from a co-deposited fluorescence dye (blue). After release, the cell was picked up with the same cantilever and isolated from the rest by placing it in a separate well, sorted by fluorescence (right image; adapted from Lab Chip (2014) 14, 402‑414 with permission from The Royal Society of Chemistry).

Key Benefits

Innovative and intuitive handling

With its touchscreen interface and predefined experimental workflows, e.g for single-cell injection and extraction or for bacterial and cell adhesion force measurements, the intuitive FluidFM ARYA operator software will guide you through each of your experiments step-by-step.

All FluidFM probes come in sterile blister packs and pre-mounted on plastic carrier clips. Each blister pack has a QR code that can be read with the QR code reader supplied with the Flex-FPM system to allow direct import of detailed cantilever information into the operator software.
