ForceRobot®: Nanotechnology Meets Molecular Analytics
Force spectroscopy is the method of choice, whenever scientists want to understand how individual biomolecules, small compounds, polymers and surfaces interact with each other. No averaging, labeling or indirect conclusions but clear-cut results with forces and distances delivered in absolute numbers. Application areas include: Molecular design, material science, structural characterization, energy landscape determination, folding/unfolding dynamics, binding site localization and affinity monitoring.

ForceRobot® overcomes the hurdles of traditional force spectroscopes with their low data output and the requirement of frequent manual adjustments. ForceRobot® automates routine procedures providing software support for experimental design, data acquisition and evaluation. Tens of thousands of force curves are generated in a matter of hours in unattended mode. No-event force curves are automatically filtered out and the useful data are presented for further evaluation.

ForceRobot® is the result of a process of more than three years of development. Our engineers and scientists adhere to strictest quality criteria to make sure the product meets the highest expectations.

We experienced a very positive resonance from the scientific community when we presented ForceRobot® earlier this year at the 51st Annual Meeting of the Biophysical Society in Baltimore, USA. To strengthen our visibility on the European market, we will now attend the International Conference on Nanoscience and Technology in Stockholm from 2nd to 6th of July ( http://www.congrex.com/ivc17icss13/welcome.asp ) as well as the 6th European Biophysics Congress in London from 15th to 19th of July ( http://www.ebsa.org/EURO2007/index.html ).

We are looking forward to a further on successful market introduction of the ForceRobot® by providing easier access to cutting-edge technology on the single molecule level.

About nAmbition
nAmbition (nano & Ambition = nAmbition) is specialized on nano-technology based solutions in the area of molecular analytics.
Nanotechnology, biotechnology, robotics and information technology are merged in order to provide an easier access to nano-technological methods for a wider range of users in academia and industry.
Currently, we are focused on the automation of force spectroscopy.
nAmbition GmbH was founded in Dresden, Germany, in July 2004. nAmbition’s largest partner is JPK Instruments AG located in Berlin, who is engaged in the development, production and worldwide distribution of high-quality nano-analytical instruments for life science applications.
nAmbition has completed its first financing round in 2005. Investors are, aside from partner JPK Instruments AG, Dresden Fonds GmbH and the Technology Holding Company (tbg). Within the scope of a major joint project of the BMBF (Federal Ministry for Education and Research) with the Workgroup Cellular Machines headed by Prof. Dr. Daniel Müller of the Technical University Dresden, nAmbition has successfully concluded one of the largest German nano-biotechnology research and development projects in December 2006.
The worldwide first automated force spectroscope, ForceRobot®, was presented in March 2007 at the 51st Annual Meeting of the Biophysical Society in Baltimore, USA.
