"...Our partners at NT-MDT were courageous to come to the lab in the middle of this pandemics with the risk for life, which itself created high level of respect for keeping their responsibility to customers: we needed this instrument highly for our government-sponsored project's success.
The device itself is simple and reliably performing. Many modes of operation create an impression that we possess many instruments at once, like AFM, Raman and Kelvin microscopes. The quality of optics is high, and the software is user-friendly. Another positive factor is that it is integrated with the ThermoFisher Raman module, so we can use our experience with the Omnic software for faster progress with utilization of this device.
The company representative was so kind that he provided us a number of various probes which we can try before placing online orders for the units required for our research. Interestingly, we obtained that with upgrading this unit we can perform the AFM in a liquid medium - this was a positive surprise for us since we needed it, and currently are working on this upgrading issue."
