DiATOME cryo AFM and DiATOME ultra AFM diamond knife.


The Diatome cryo AFM and ultra AFM knives have been developed for specimen surface investigation using Atomic Force Microscopy. Diatome ultra AFM and Diatome cryo AFM knives are specially tested to ensure that they meet the increased quality requirements of AFM investigation. They produce extremely smooth sample surfaces and guarantee the best possible structure preservation.
