The compact research AFM that offers best value for money
- Compact by design, with a complete and streamlined feature set
- A real performer that is both powerful and versatile
- Simplicity and functionality that offer top value for money
NaioAFM — Nanosurf’s latest atomic force microscope. The NaioAFM integrates AFM scan head, Controller, Vibration isolation table and Sample positioning stage all in a single, compact, affordable and easy-to-use device.
The NaioSTM is the successor to the well-known Easyscan 2 scanning tunneling microscope and brings together scan head and controller in a single instrument for even greater ease of installation, use, and transportability. The whole setup is very robust against vibrations and can be used in standard classroom situations. With its integrated controller, this compact, user-friendly, and affordable scanning tunneling microscope hardly takes up any workbench space.

NaniteAFM — The AFM integration solution
Compact and mountable atomic force microscope for materials research and industry
- Quantitative surface analysis at the nanoscale
- Compact, mountable and easy to integrate
- Save time thanks to optimized ease of use
- Automation of measurements and analysis
- Suitable for large and heavy samples
The surface morphology is an important property for many high-tech surfaces with features that can go down to a few nanometers and surface roughness below the nanometer. With AFM such features can be readily analyzed under ambient conditions. Most AFMs are limited in the type and size of samples they can handle. The NaniteAFM by Nanosurf is the market leading solution for AFM integration with least restriction to the sample dimensions.
- Quantitative analysis of tissues and soft materials
- Fully automated measurement of non-even surfaces
- Fast, objective, and routine tissue diagnostics
- ouchscreen interface for easy operation
Flexible Research Atomic Force Microscope for Materials and Life Science
