    The most accurate and practical
    nano bio-research microscope

Single Live Cell Imaging and Scanning Ion Conductance Microscopy

Park XE-Bio is a powerful 3-in-1 bio-research tool that uniquely combines Scanning Ion Conductance Microscopy (SICM) with AFM and inverted optical microscope (IOM) on the same platform. The modular design of Park XE-Bio allows easy exchange between SICM and AFM. Designed for non-invasive in-liquid imaging, the combined bio-mechanical property measuring capability of AFM, SICM, and inverted optical microscopy makes Park XE-Bio ideal for studying biological materials under physiological conditions.
