Discover the power of sound
The essence of the AFS™ technology lies in a glass microfluidic chip with a piezo element that generates resonant acoustic waves (ultrasound). These resonant acoustic waves are used to exert forces on micrometer-sized particles with a different density than the surrounding medium — e.g. a polystyrene microsphere or a living cell.
The AFS™ G2 brings novel features and improved performance, such as the new automated XY stage, the drift correction option, integrated temperature control, and an individual electronic fingerprint per chip. These developments increase the data quality and improve the ease-of-use for highly-multiplexed force spectroscopy measurements.
