Join us at our AFM open lab
AFM Basics: Choosing AFM probes and imaging in liquid
Space is limited, so register now

This AFM Basics lab is open to all AFM users that are seeking expert advice and tips and tricks on getting the best possible images and results.  


You're invited to join us at our one-day Open AFM Lab in Wiesbaden, Germany to learn more about AFM basics from our team of experts. The objective is to teach you best practices and help you get better results from your AFM experiments, no matter what brand of instrument you may be using. 

Our Applications Scientists will focus on AFM basics and share their tips and tricks for achieving the best AFM results. You’ll gain valuable skills in the "how-to" lectures and live instrument demonstrations, followed by an open Q&A session at the end of workshop — an ideal opportunity to get all your AFM questions answered as well as share your experience with other attendees. 
Registration is free, but all attendees must register to guarantee their spot as seating is limited.
