Novascan's Probe Laboratory modifies commercially available AFM probes. Standard probe composition and spring constant information appears below. In most cases, the Probe Lab can also modify cantilevers supplied by clients. Please inquire as to the feasibility of using your probes for a given probe modification.
Novascan’s probe technicians have developed several protocols for the conjugation of pro- teins to unmodified and particle modified AFM probes. The addition of linking molecules such as polyethylene glycol (PEG) is often required. Please inquire as to the feasibility of us- ing specific proteins.
