AFM: BioScope Resolve

October 23-25, 2018 | Karlsruhe, Germany

Course Objective:

During this modular 3-day course you can improve your skillset on the Bruker Resolve system. If you are new to the system or need a refresher, you can choose to stay the full three days or participate only in one or two days, depending on your personal requirements. The course covers basic software usage, probe selection, probe installation, laser alignment, standard experiments in contact, tapping and ScanAsyst mode on the first day. A brief look into the analysis functions is also scheduled for day one. On the second day advanced options of the Resolve AFM are covered. We would start with calibrating the AFM, optimizing scan conditions to minimize sample and tip degradation, training on work in liquids. Since sample preparation plays an important role in biological AFM we would give a basic introduction on how to prepare and scan biological samples. Day three will be used for introduction to work with force measurements, the usage of Miro and the high accuracy stage. The course will be held in Karlsruhe, Germany. The language will be English.
