Improve the accuracy of your force data
AFM force data is highly dependent upon cantilever spring constant values. Based on their own data, manufacturer reported values for this characteristic can vary as widely as plus/minus 50%. This variation can significantly affect the data you collect. Novascan now offers the opportunity to improve the accuracy of your force data in a fast, easy, non-destructive manner with the Novascan PCM-90 probe calibration module.
