In this two-part webinar, the Bruker bioAFM applications team discusses the use and current capabilities of high-speed AFM, including a short overview of the technique, before demonstrating the NanoRacer High-Speed AFM LIVE from our laboratories in Berlin, Germany.
Additionally, Prof Anselmetti provides insight into his work using High-Speed AFM, focusing on industrial R&D applications.
Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM), an advanced multi-parametric imaging technique, not only delivers high-resolution 3D images of the topography of living biological samples in the nm-range, but also enables the characterization of the nanomechanical properties of molecules, cells, and tissues, and the visualization of structural changes taking place at the molecular level.
This three-part webinar includes the following individual presentations:

In this talk, Dario Anselmetti, Ph.D., present the results of novel studies using the High-Speed AFM technology, with a particular focus on industrial R&D applications.
The results, obtained in experiments using two different high-speed AFM systems, were conducted under in-situ conditions, in a broad and controlled temperature range, and using material-specific imaging modes, such as the Kelvin probe mode. He used High-Speed AFM for applications as varied as the investigation of the molecular structure, dynamics and interplay of nucleic acid systems designed for immuno- and gene therapy applications, polysaccharides in the food industry and corrosive aging in technical polymers and stainless steel surfaces in material science.
