Opportunities to use world-class Biological Scanning Probe Microscopy Facility

Open Facility Programs

Researchers at NanoLSI have engaged in the pioneering development of original Biological Scanning Probe Microscopy (Bio-SPM) technologies, such as high-resolution AFM (FM-AFM/3D-AFM), high-speed AFM, and scanning ion conductance microscope (SICM), and applied them to the life sciences.

We are pleased to offer you opportunities to use our facilities for imaging your own biological samples or materials for biological research, and realize their potentials.

Through the programs, we would like to foster research collaborations and networks.
