Negotiated procedure without prior publication
  • The works, supplies or services can be provided only by a particular economic operator for the following reason:
    • protection of exclusive rights, including intellectual property rights

Currently, this is the most stable AFM available for my needs (fast scanning, high resolution scanning and force measurements in liquid). This is partly due to their closed loop system, VRS setup, their patented blue drive system for driving the cantilever and the easy exchange of laser spot size. Attached file (Video rate AFM specs) give full details. This is also the only system on the market to have an 100 % hermetic closed fluid cell.
