The 3XC series features three different cantilevers for various measurement modes:
- 500DC - Contact mode cantilever
- 200AC - Standard AC mode cantilever
- 240AC - Soft AC mode cantilever for imaging soft samples
The gold coated version is suitable for biological applications, tip functionalization and custom applications. The overall gold coating ensures inertness and electrical conductivity, as well as high and stable laser reflectivity in air, liquid and aggressive chemical environments. The tetrahedral tips are located precisely at the free ends of the cantilevers. This allows the tips to be positioned accurately over the area of interest on the sample surface.
