Through a deep knowledge of sensing technologies, technically adept personnel, and experience across a bevy of applications, Mad City Labs helps our customers operate smaller and more cost-effectively than any competitor.
Magnetic tweezer experiments often seek to measure changes in the extension or relaxation of a polymer, a functionality useful, for example, in exploring how different enzymes manipulate polymer structures.
A team of Duke University researchers sought to explore the viral infection process before the virus has bonded to tissue, understanding how viruses navigate the epithelial space, through mucus and the periciliary layer.
The MMP series of micropositioners from Mad City Labs has a modular design and can be incorporated into many configurations suitable for microscopy, inspection, and imaging applications. The series is designed to be compatible with many optomechanical components and controlled via (supplied) LabView software.
Moving from micron- to nanoscale-level research forces researchers to better understand their own actions’ impact on passive factors that undermine precision. Simple modifications to an experiment or instrumentation can help researchers achieve precision goals without additional processing.
Nanopositioner applications, utility, and functionality often are misunderstood — to the detriment of researchers whose experiments might benefit from the stability, precision, and repeatability these instruments offer.
Atomic force microscopes are ideal for nanomechanical characterization, bringing utility to nanoscopy applications and excelling in conditions where low light presents challenges or sample integrity is vital.
