"So many things are still hidden in biological molecules," stated Toshio Ando, Professor at the Nano Life Science Institute (WPI-NanoLSI) of Kanazawa University in Japan. "To uncover their unexplored secrets, there is a true need to directly observe individual molecules during thir functional activity. As the fastest commercial, high-speed AFM available, the NanoRacer enables this direct observation in real-time. A lot of innovative ideas have been incorporated for easy operation and high performance, and it is my utmost wish that many researchers will use the NanoRacer to make exciting discoveries."
"The NanoRacer system is the satisfying culmination of a series of Bruker innovations in high-speed AFM," added Torsten Jähnke, Bruker's Director of BioAFM. "From both a performance and usability standpoint, we believe the NanoRacer will revolutionize high-end atomic force microscopy for single-molecule applications. Researchers from biochemistry, molecular biology, and molecular medicine now have, for the first time, an AFM tool that enables them to watch molecules at work and understand structure-function relationships in depth."
