11-12 December, 2018 | JPK BioAFM Center, Berlin Germany

We invite you to join the conference, practical workshops and training sessions covering the latest SPM technology and applications.

The event is open to any researcher interested in SPM. We especially welcome all users of JPK and Bruker AFMs as well as Anasys nanoIR systems.


  • Presentations from leading research groups
  • Hands-on practical workshops and training
  • Discover new innovations in BioAFM, nano-IR & nanoelectrical characterisation
  • Conference dinner and networking opportunities

Topics include new developments in Life Sciences AFM, advanced nanoscale mechanical/electrical characterisation and combined AFM nanoscale infrared spectroscopy.

Hands-on practical workshops will be held using NanoWizard®, NanoWizard® ULTRA Speed, Dimension Icon, BioScope Resolve and CellHesion systems: on e.g. Fast AFM, from cells to individual molecules in conjunction with optical microscopy, live cell-cell/cell-substrate interactions measurements.

The conference takes place at the Bruker BNA Office in Adlershof, with transfers to the JPK BioAFM Center in Tempelhof for practical workshops included.
