  • Resistance auto ranging from 1 Ω to 100,000 Ω or with three fixed current ranges
  • Reliable low current, low voltage design prevents metal ion transport
  • Fast resistance stabilisation on low levels under 200 Ω with resolution to 0.1 Ω
  • Ergonomic tilt stand for low glare operation
  • Graphical display of popular plates (6, 12, 24, 96) for trend analysis
  • Display shows the most recent set of parameters
  • Automatic plate indexing operation with or without control well subtraction for resistance and potential difference (PD) measurements
  • Continuous data logging via USB (PC, Mac, Linux)
  • Saves date stamped data to a spreadsheet readable file on a USB drive
  • Upgradable firmware
  • Uprade of the EVOM3, in the trusted family of the EVOM™ brand of TEER measurement products

Webinar : Developments in Force Measurement, Mechanobiology


Thursday 24 March 2022 : 4pm Auckland, 2pm Sydney, 11am Perth



Mechanobiology is an emerging field of science combining the contributions of biologists, chemists, and physicists. Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) provides the direct tool to measure forces and mechanical properties from atom to tissue level. BioAFM, which integrates AFM onto various optical microscopy platforms, offers the one-stop solution to reveal the effects of the physical forces and mechanical properties on the behaviors and functions of proteins, cells and tissues, and the resulted contributions to development, cell differentiation, physiology, and disease. Along with the expanding success in this field, new requirements have been emerging for BioAFM. To address these requirements, recent developments have been focused on (but not limited to) improved temporal resolution of force measurement for capturing detailed dynamic processes, novel modes for fast and flexible quantitative nanomechanical measurements, enhanced integration with other microscopic techniques, and automation options and intuitive operations for a user-friendly workflow from experiment setup to data analysis.


In this webinar, we will introduce in detail on the above-mentioned developments on our new generation BioAFM platforms (e.g., NanoWizard®V & NanoRacer®) and how the practical applications may benefit from them.

Automated Quantitative Nanomechanical Imaging

Wednesday 9 March 2020, 4pm NZDT, 2pm AEDT, 11am AWST



Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM), with its unique capabilities of high-resolution 3D imaging and direct nanomechanical properties measurement, has emerged as an essential and powerful tool in biological applications. As the pioneer in the field with more than 25 years’ experience, JPK/Bruker BioAFM's have never stop evolving to address emerging new applications.


The newly released NanoWizard® V combines high spatio-temporal resolution with a large scan area, flexible experiment design and out-standing integration with advanced optical microscope systems; help to significantly advance our understanding of dynamic cellular processes and molecular mechanisms. PeakForce-QI mode enables fast and flexible quantitative nanomechanical measurements.  Adaptive, intelligence-based Fast Scanning capability and NestedScanner feature not only provide higher throughput even at corrugated samples, but also enable the study of dynamic biological processes in real time. The fully automated AFM head and intuitive operations through the whole workflow, from experiment set-up to data analysis, make our AFM more user friendly, for both experienced and new users.


In this webinar, we are going to introduce some of the new features and functions brought by NanoWizard® V, and how they have already been applied in practical applications.
