J. Fraser Stoddart, director of the CNSI, who holds UCLA's Fred Kavli Chair in Nanosystems Sciences, commented, "Veeco has always been a great partner to CNSI in our nanotechnology research. These latest purchases further position CNSI as one of the world's leading nanotechnology centers focused on the advancement of cell biology, molecular and materials sciences. These tools offer us state-of-the art 3D surface metrology and will be an important asset to the work conducted at the Nano and Pico Characterization core facility at CNSI to visualize surfaces and molecules, as well as nanostructures and devices, down to the level of individual atoms."
The innovative, high-performance BioScope II AFM has been engineered specifically to facilitate advanced bioscience. The revolutionary design of the BioScope II supports the full functionality of today's most powerful inverted optical microscopes, including confocal and TIRF (total internal reflection fluorescence) systems, thus further extending the latest research capabilities in the life sciences.
Jeannine Sargent, Executive Vice President, Veeco Metrology, commented, "We are gratified that CNSI continues to place their trust in Veeco's AFM and optical technologies. We are particularly pleased that CNSI is the first customer for Veeco's BioScope II Confocal AFM Package offering CNSI's users simultaneous fluorescence and atomic force microscopy and enabling tremendous flexibility in their biological and nano-medicine research. In addition, having CNSI as an early purchaser of several of our newest AFM and optical products speaks to the relevance of these instruments to the worldwide university nanotechnology research community. Veeco's EasyAFM™ and industry's broadest selection of AFM functionality on a common platform will enable a high level of productivity by the hundreds of users of the CNSI core nanotechnology lab." Veeco is the world leader in atomic force and scanning probe microscopy, with an installed base of over 7,500 systems at university and research/nanotechnology centers worldwide.
