PELCO AFM gold standard kit

Characterized colloidal gold particles for:

  • Characterization of scanning tip geometry
  • Reliable calibration of the vertical scale of piezoelectric response
  • Characterizing vertical dimensions of coadsorbed biomolecules

Three sizes of colloidal gold particles are available in a convenient kit form. The kit contains 8 numbered 15mm AFM discs with mica attached for calibration and tip characterization. Remaining colloidal gold can be used for coadsorption with biomolecules or other samples.
