Seeing at the Nanoscale 2012

Continued Innovation Delivers
the Ultimate in AFM Technology

As the world leader in AFM technology and manufacturing, Bruker takes its responsibility to support the industry with continual innovation and customer service very seriously. In product innovation, we are pleased to announce another first, the Dimension FastScan Bio™ AFM, which enables high-resolution microscopy research in biological dynamics. Now, with FastScan Bio, advanced studies of the dynamics behind protein, DNA, RNA, membrane, cell and tissue interactions is an easy possibility for mainstream biology research.

Mark Munch,
Bruker Nano Surfaces

Bruker's continued investment in technology has helped us to build upon past innovations to create new possibilities. When we first introduced TappingMode™, it was a major advance in technology that grew to become the standard for AFM investigation. The introduction of Peak Force Tapping® just over two years ago proved to be just as revolutionary. Now Peak Force Tapping is delivering atomic resolution on larger samples using standard cantilevers. This breakthrough has led to our inclusion of proprietary atomic PeakForce Capture™ and ScanAsyst® ease-of-use on our recently released Dimension FastScan™ Atomic AFM. The result is another major breakthrough of atomic resolution without sacrificing image quality or the system's legendary throughput. FastScan is now truly the ultimate AFM platform available today.

In the emerging area of AFM-Raman, we have listened to the needs of our customers and have partnered directly with leading Raman instrumentation companies to deliver complete, state-of-the-art solutions. Our Integrated AFM-Raman Imaging Systems remove the guesswork from TERS and provide users the ability to perform integrated AFM-Raman research without having to worry about compatibility of instrumentation and data. We are very excited about hosting several demonstrations and workshops featuring this technology, and hope that you will be able to attend one at a location near you.

We also have been busy upgrading our facilities, factories and customer care centers. In April we opened our first new Bio Technology facility at the University of Delaware, and are planning the opening of several additional facilities around the world over the next year. In addition, to better serve the needs of our customers around the globe, we have opened several international customer care centers, first offering call services, but quickly expanding our offerings to include warranty, repair and training. In the beginning of July, we hosted the tenth annual Seeing at the Nanoscale conference in historic Bristol, UK. As this event always does, Seeing at the Nanoscale 2012 brought together renowned researchers to share their latest research in AFM technology one-on-one with their peers. Events such as this and other workshops, tradeshows, and support trips help keep Bruker personnel continually interacting with researchers and helps us stay at the very leading edge of AFM technology advancement. Please enjoy our latest news.

10th Anniversary Event

Seeing at the Nanoscale 2012, just held at the Wills Memorial Building, University of Bristol in the United Kingdom was a huge success with attendees from 27 countries. Industry and research leaders presented papers and posters and attended workshops over the three-day interactive event. Topics ranged from biological applications and nanomaterials to energy and instrument development. Read More
