Bruker Introduces New Drift-Compensated Probes for BioAFM
Introducing Bruker’s new MLCT-BIO and MLCT-BIO-DC probes
Optimized probes for lowest forces in BioAFM imaging and force spectroscopy.
Bruker’s new line of MLCT-BIO and MLCT-BIO-DC probes address a range of BioAFM applications, particularly for live cell imaging and force spectroscopy with:
- Low spring constants down to 0.01N/m for contact mode and bio force spectroscopy
- Tip radius and apex angle avoids damage on live cells
- Nitride tip material suitable for bio adhesion / functionalization studies
- Biocompatible backside gold coating minimizes interference
- Tight bend specification ensures wide compatibility with AFMs
- MLCT-BIO-DC adds unique drift compensation on all levers
The added drift compensation on MLCT-BIO-DC enables maintaining low, constant forces in both, contact mode imaging and ramp-hold experiments where force drift often effectively limits the ability to probe cell viscoelasticity.
