PHOENIX, Aug. 6, 2012 — Bruker Corp. has announced the Dimension FastScan Bio atomic force microscope (AFM), which enables high-resolution microscopy research in biological dynamics. Design innovations have resulted in a fast-scanning AFM that allows temporal investigation under physiological operating environments in fluid, while exceeding the diffraction limits of optical microscopy.
The system introduces a new user interface that increases ease of use and productivity for biologists. The microscope provides temporal resolution in frames-per-second for live biological sample observations. Applications include studies of the dynamics behind protein, DNA, RNA, membrane, cell and tissue interactions, and productive spatiotemporal nanometer-scale research.
The system uses an X-Y-Z scanner that operates at high speeds while producing low drift and low noise, along with a small-volume fluid sample cell. Other features include automated laser and detector alignment, an easy sample engaging process, and the ability to investigate samples in a droplet of solution or its 60-μl sample cell.
