JPK unveils re-designed web site focusing on scanning probe microscopy

JPK Instruments : 02 September, 2008  (Company News)
JPK Instruments, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of nanoanalytic instrumentation for research in life sciences and soft matter, has unveiled its re-designed web site -
JPK’s new web site provides a simple route to learning more about the applications of many different forms of scanning probe microscopy. There is the core product line of the NanoWizard BioAFM platform to provide highest resolution imaging, advanced force measurements and simultaneous optical imaging in liquids.

Also featured is the area of automated force spectroscopy. For the first time, automation using the ForceRobot makes it fast enough to deliver high quality data in short time-frames. This is vital for statistically viable data and the ability to deliver up to 80,000 measurements per day is unsurpassed.

NanoOptics are provided to the life sciences through the technique of optical tweezers. The concept of using nanoparticles as a local sensor or probe enables important developments in medicine, molecular and cellular biology. To observe the entrance process of a particle into a cell in real time, in 3D and without perturbation of the biological specimen is a dream of many life science researchers. This is now available through the NanoTracker system.

The company’s new CellHesion technology is also described. CellHesion provides the measurement of cell adhesion and cell elasticity. To date, cellular adhesion has been studied with fluorescence microscopy, capillary techniques or mechanical methods such as rotation assays and flow chambers. All these methods have their limitations. Either they provide qualitative, difficult-to-interpret results or are difficult to operate.

JPK’s web site provides a reliable resource for applications of scanning probe and optical tweezers technology. Examples illustrate the power of these techniques when used in combination with more established methods such as confocal and fluorescence Microscopy helping users, experts and beginners alike. A comprehensive image gallery with images, force curves and other measurements underlines the application expertise from JPK in the field.
