Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO) has selected JPK Instruments' NanoWizardŽII, the next generation of BioAFM, to become a new member of its nano instrumentation platform. The atomic force microscope will mainly be used for their new activities within the area of nanobiology. iNANO is located at the University of Aarhus in Aarhus, Denmark ( http://www.inano.dk ), and is headed by Prof. Flemming Besenbacher, an internationally recognized pioneer in the field of Scanning Probe Microscopy and especially Scanning Tunneling Microscopy. The center is a unique interdisciplinary nanoscience center where competences in physics, chemistry, molecular biology and biology meet in fundamental nanoscience studies and more applied entrepreneurial activities within nanotechnology.
NanoWizardŽII goes north First installation at the outstanding interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center in Denmark
Berlin, Germany | Posted on January 31st, 2007
The NanoWizardŽII system will be applied to advance the research in microbiology and cell biology, where advanced fluid operation capabilities as well as high-resolution in closed loop AFM imaging are a necessity. The research group of Assistant Prof. R. Meyer chose the NanoWizardŽII system, because the NanoWizard combines advanced AFM capabilities with the full capabilities of modern inverted optical microscopes, such as phase contrast, DIC and fluorescence imaging with JPK's DirectOverlay. Moreover, it allows the combination of advanced optical methods, such as TIRF, confocal laser scanning and FCS with the AFM.
JPK's unique DirectOverlay software provides a key functionality that enables the seamless integration of optical and AFM measurements. A patented calibration procedure compensates for the errors of optical imaging to allow a perfect match between optical and real-space three dimensional AFM imaging.
The NanoWizardŽII installation at the iNANO center in Aarhus underlines JPK's track record and superiority of the NanoWizardŽII for interdisciplinary applications where biology, physics and chemistry meet in the context of nanoscience. Torsten Jähnke, the CTO of JPK Instruments comments: "We are pleased that our NanoWizardŽII has been selected by the iNANO center, and we are proud to continue working with pioneers in the SPM field like Prof. Flemming Besenbacher, and ambitious researchers like Assistant Profs. R. Meyer and W. Mamdouh." JPK is looking forward to continue the cooperation with the iNANO research group in Aarhus to further push the development of new applications of the AFM in the biological nanosciences forward.
About JPK Instruments AG
JPK Instruments AG is a leading manufacturer of nanoanalytic instruments - particularly atomic force microscope (AFM) systems - for research in life sciences and soft matter. One of Germanys most innovative nanotechnology companies, JPK was among the first to recognize the revolutionary opportunities this new field would open up for biomedical and pharmaceutical research. From the beginning, JPK has tailored its instrument platforms to meet the challenges these areas would face. JPK has developed powerful state-of-the-art solutions for high-resolution imaging, force measurement, nanomanipulation and nanolithography for life science applications. At the center of JPKs current portfolio are the BioAFM NanoWizardŽ, the CellHesionŽ module (for studying cell adhesion and cell mechanics phenomena), and the TAO module (for use in optical spectroscopy). The secret of JPKs success is its high level of application expertise and its close interaction with leading scientists and research centers in nanotechnology. Founded in 1999, the company is headquartered in Berlin and maintains a global network of distributors and support centers. In 2005 it launched nAmbition GmbH, a Dresden subsidiary specializing in the development of nano instruments for application in molecular medicine and pharmaceutical research. In August 2006, this was followed up by the 100% acquisition of lpi light power instruments GmbH, which is focussing on the development of optical nano-instrumentation for life science applications in research and industry.
