The modular design of the XE-Bio allows easy interchange between non-contact AFM and ICM. Designed for non-invasive in-liquid imaging, the combined imaging capability of AFM, ICM, and inverted optical microscopy makes the XE-Bio ideal for imaging biological samples, such as living cells, in dynamic conditions. Moreover, ICM can be adapted to enable a host of powerful applications in nanoscale electrophysiology.Powerful 3-in-1 Nanoscale Research Tool with Modular PlatformTrue Non-Contact Atomic Force Microscope (AFM)Ion Conductance Microscope (ICM)Inverted Optical MicroscopeUltimate AFM Resolution by True Non-Contact Mode10 times larger Z-scan bandwidth than a piezotubeLess tip wear for prolonged high-quality and high-resolution imagingMinimized sample damage or modi!cationImmunity from parameter-dependent results observed in tapping imaging modeSingle molecule Force-Distance spectroscopy with automated data analysisNon-invasive In-liquid Imaging by ICMMonitoring ion channels of single living cellsUnique functional capability of targeted localized stimulationEnable nanoscale patch-clamping for electrophysiologyEnvironmental chamber for temperature, pH, and humidity controlFully Integrated Inverted Optical MicroscopeCompatible with phase contrast and DIC imagingAlso compatible with "uorescence microscopyAdvanced image overlay functionsWood CellBiotechnology InstrumentationFor other AFMs in the range please go to page 34Human Breast Cancer Cell
