In Life Sciences branches, various measurement techniques and associated micro- and nanotechnologies come together. Often the research areas within Life Sciences are processes that take place within a cell (body cell – biology). The measuring instruments combine chemistry (liquids) with biology (body cell), this way we offer researchers in Life Sciences the opportunity to combat or detect diseases, among other things.
By measuring living cells at the micro but also at the nano scale, changes can be measured at the molecular level by adding proteins or drugs. Adhesion or no adhesion are properties that are measured in-situ on objects or materials.
A number of Micro and Nano measuring methods incl. supplier at a glance:
• Multi-Parametric Surface Plasmon Resonance (MP-SPR) from BioNavis
• Quartz Crystal Microbalance with Dissipation monitoring (QCMD) from AWSensors
• Hot & Cool Stages for various Linkam microscopes
As described in “MICRO and NANOTECHNOLOGY & SURFACE TENSION”, the techniques mentioned above can often be combined so that a large number of instruments can be purchased from one supplier.
These high-quality instruments are also developed and manufactured by our suppliers in Europe, which guarantees cost savings and independence.
