Introducing Bruker’s New High Resolution PeakForce Tapping Probes for any application, air and fluid!

Bruker AFM Probes presents the world’s first family of probes specifically targeted at delivering the highest resolution images in PeakForce Tapping mode, for any application.  We now offer high resolution PeakForce Tapping probe solutions for:

– Biomolecular lattice imaging (PEAKFORCE-HIRS-F-A)
– Single biomolecule imaging (PEAKFORCE-HIRS-F-B)
– Delicate samples in air and fluid (PEAKFORCE-HIRS-SSB)
– General imaging in air (SCANASYST-AIR-HPI-SS)
– High speed imaging (FASTSCAN-D-SS)

 PEAKFORCE-HIRS-F-A

Delivers highest resolution on molecular lattices.
– k = 0.35 N/m
– f = 165 kHz
– Tip radius = 1 nm
– 10 probes

Lattice structure of Bacteriorhodopsin (bR) taken on an inverted optical microscope with BioScope Resolve.  Inset showing a single particle averaging of the bR trimer.  Green circle showing a single lattice defect.  Blue circle showing the lattice substructures. Z scale 0.6 nm.

 

PEAKFORCE-HIRS-F-B

Delivers highest resolution on single biomolecules.
– k = 0.12 N/m
