  • Atomic-force microscope INTEGRA Prima (NT-MDT)
  • Interdisciplinary researching at the nanometer scale system INTEGRA Spectra: AFM + Confocal Raman + SNOM + TERS (NT-MDT)
  • Bio AFM Life, fully automated AFM integrated with Inverted Light Microscope Nikon Eclipse Ti for biological research. With its wide variety of techniques and modes of probe measurements, the Bio AFM LIFE is applicable for many challenges in life science and biotechnology: Molecular and cellular biology research; Live cell research; Microbiology and virus research; Cell-cell and cell-substrate interactions. It can be used to study of living cells, organelles and bimolecular systems in physiological conditions. Atomically-sharp probes of an AFM can be used as a tool for local treatments and single cell nano surgery. (NT-MDT)
  • Label-free Photonic Crystal Surface Wave (PC SW)-based biosensor "EVA" with an independent registration of the critical angle of total internal reflection (TIR) from the liquid.
  • Probing station for RF applications EPS150RF. Allows to achieve accuracy through a very stable system platform design with a vibration-isolation solution to protect contact quality over measurement time. Optimized optics and backlash-free X-Y-Z movement of industry-standard positioners enable precise probe placement. Probe arms with built-in high-quality coaxial cables optimize the signal path and allow you to test a variety of devices down to pA levels with a high degree of confidence.
  • High Throughput NMR Ascend 500 MHz for Development and Validation of High-Quality and Cost-Effective IVD-by-NMR and Clinical Screening Assays
