Colloidal probes are used to study interaction forces between surfaces. A colloidal particle with well-defined geometry attached to the free end of the cantilever is used to measure interaction forces to determine nano-mechanical properties. We mount borosilicate glass (BSG)/polystyrene (PS)/silica (SiO₂) particles of different sizes with high precision. We also mount user supplied particles, please contact us for details.
STEPS to choose colloidal probe of your choice:
1 Select Tipless cantilever from our catalog.
2 Select a colloid type.
3 Select a colloid size (µm).
4 Select coating options.
*Au coating on the colloid for studies like functionalization will be a special order, please contact us before placing order.
**Box of 5 probes is the minimum order.
