BioAFM Application Notes

The Novel JPK CryoStage for Versatile Temperature Control for -120°C to 220°C

Read about the capabilities and applications of the CryoStage

Discover Convenient, Versatile Temperature Control Tools

The CryoStage is a novel sample stage designed to facilitate both very high and very low temperature AFM imaging. This technology, combined with our leading-edge BioAFM instruments, extends the temperature range for AFM experiments to + 220C to -120C in a water-free environment and allow surface observation at high imaging speeds.


Readers can expect to learn about:

  • The capabilities and novel experimental potential of the CryoStage;
  • The impact of using the CryoStage on material property measurements, including Young's Modulus, and phase imaging outcomes; and
  • Measuring melting point and glass transition, and the change in chain mobility, of thin polymer film samples.
