Nanolane is proud to announce the launch of its new equipment SARFUS 3D-IMM dedicated to the topographic characterization of nanometric samples in water.
Equipments for characterization in water are still rare, relatively complex to operate and do not offer real-time images of samples. SARFUS 3D-IMM is designed to match the needs of the engineering and research community, especially in the Life Science but also in Thin Film and Surface Treatment areas. Indeed, SARFUS 3D-IMM is dedicated to the observation of nano-objects in real-time and to the thickness measurements of ultra-thin films in water.
Like the other SARFUS products, SARFUS 3D-IMM is based on SEEC optical technique that uses specific nonreflecting surfaces for cross-polarized reflected light microscopy. These surfaces -the Surfs- are used instead of standard microscope slides and generate a contrast enhancement of about 2 orders of magnitude, extending the application fields of optical microscopy toward the nanoworld.
Thanks to the absence of scanning and its easiness of use, SARFUS 3D-IMM equipment opens new perspectives for the nano-characterization in aqueous media by allowing dynamic studies of nanometric structures and rapid quality control of samples. In addition, the equipment is proposed with a powerful 3D topographic software for complete characterization (layer thicknesses, section profiles, roughnesses...) of nanometric samples.
The main applications concerned by this innovation are:
- Lipid bilayers
- Cell adhesion
Thin films & Surface Treatment
- Sensitive films (LCST)
- Polymer patterns
The main features of SARFUS 3D-IMM equipment are:
- User friendly & Fast processing
- Repeatability : 0.1nm (according to ISO standard 17025)
- Z-sensibility limit: 0.2nm
- Range of measurement: 1 to 60nm
- Lateral resolution : 330nm
- Live video acquisition
- Time lapse (up to 15 image per second)
- Non destructive, no labelling
- Compatibility with fluorescence
éolane is the signature, of seven companies, all gathered under 100% control of a holding, the “Financière de l’Ombrée”, whose main activity is the conception, the study and the manufacture of professional electronic materials.
Each of them operates in complementary fields (technologies, industrial resource, economic sectors, and geographical areas). Strong synergies are present between them (conception, purchases, sales, industry, networks, and quality, to quote only the principal ones).
