The NANOSENSORS uniqprobe combines the well-known features of the other NANOSENSORS AFM probe series such as high application versatility and compatibility with most commercial SPMs with the additional advantage of a strongly reduced dispersion of force constant and resonance frequency. The unsurpassed uniformity of the mechanical characteristics of the uniqprobe series is particularly important for applications, where a large number of probes with known and near identical force constants or resonance frequencies are needed. The sensors of the uniqprobe series are especially adapted for molecular biology, biophysics and quantitative nano-mechanical studies. The reflex gold coating deposited on the detector side of the cantilever covers only the free end above where the tip is located. Main advantages of the uniqprobe coating are considerably less cantilever bending and reduced drift particularly for measurements in liquid environments. NANOSENORS qp-BioAC AFM probes are designed for mainly dynamic mode AFM imaging in air or liquid environments, but can also be used in contact mode. These probes feature three different rectangular cantilevers on one side of the support chip. The uniqprobe BioAC type unites fairly high resonance frequencies with low force constants. The combination of these characteristics leads to stable, low noise and fast measurements with reduced tip-sample interaction.
