BioAFM Update Webinar : Improved Spatial and Temporal Resolution

As the value of Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) in life science has been increasingly recognised, its applications have been expanded well beyond the basic topography and nanomechanical characterisation. Efforts have been devoted to improving the performance of AFM and innovating new functionalities. For example, the limits of spatiotemporal resolution have been abidingly pushed to resolve detailed features or dynamic events at bio samples; sophisticated models and specialised hardware have been introduced to not only improve the accuracy of nanomechanical measurements, but also make dynamic mechanical analysis at nanoscale possible; seamless integration to other optical technologies makes AFM no longer a standalone tool but a multi-functional analysis platform.

In this webinar, we are going to share the recent developments on BioAFM, and more importantly, to showcase how these improvements and innovations have helped solve practical questions researchers have been keen to answer.

Speaker Bio:
Dr. Yun Chen works as Application Scientist at Bruker Nano Surfaces, focusing on exploring application and providing technical support of surface metrology and tribology instruments. He was academically trained in biomedical engineering, biotechnology, and physical chemistry. His PhD work in University of Groningen, Netherlands focused on investigating bacterial behaviors on various biomaterial surfaces. Before joining Bruker, Yun pursued his academic career in Leeds University, UK, working on resolving molecular interactions and kinetics involved in the initial stage of amyloid formation.
