Microfluidic Probes

Scanning microscopy probes with a fluidic microchannel directly incorporated into an AFM-type cantilever allow controllable, local dispensing and aspiration of liquid through a submicron aperture at the probe tip. Our microfluidic probe can be used for various applications ranging from nanopatterning, ion conductance microscopy, patch clamp measurements, direct cell injection, cell staining and cell adhesion.
