CFM Probe types

CFM probes are prepared from commercially available AFM probes which are modified with specific functional groups using self-assembled monolayer’s of thiols on gold. Thiol-Au chemistry offers several advantages over alternative modification protocols:

  • Well-defined chemistry
  • Very organized and stable SAMs
  • Highly reproducible functionalization (robust production process)
  • Extremely versatile (many different chemical functionalities)

Custom modifications and/or functionalization of probes provided by clients are often possible. Please do not hesitate to contact us with specific requests and/or questions.
