JPK Instruments AG is a world-leading manufacturer of nanoanalytic instruments - particularly atomic force microscope (AFM) systems and optical tweezers - for a broad range of applications reaching from soft matter physics to nano-optics, from surface chemistry to cell and molecular biology.
From its earliest days applying atomic force microscope (AFM) technology, JPK has recognized the opportunities provided by nanotechnology for transforming life sciences and soft matter research. This focus has driven JPK’s success in uniting the worlds of nanotechnology tools and life science applications by offering cutting-edge technology and unique applications expertise. Headquartered in Berlin and with direct operations in Dresden, Cambridge (UK), Singapore, Tokyo (Japan) and Paris (France), JPK maintains a global network of distributors and support centers and provides on the spot applications and service support to an ever-growing community of researchers.
JPK R&D staff consists of experienced biophysicists, surface science experts, electrical and mechanical engineers, application engineers, and software developers. They work in close contact with each other to optimize the design of the instruments and of the software to the scientific needs of our customers.
In the application lab we apply our instruments to all kinds of samples and test instrument innovations. Our application engineers have vast experience in the preparation of samples, from cells to nanoparticles.
To ensure high quality JPK manufacture our products in-house. The close cooperation between R&D and manufacture also allows a high degree of flexibility and rapid innovation.
JPK are equipped with the most modern methods, from FEM analysis to CNC based manufacturing. Using high-end materials from medical and space technology, we are able to create high-end products.
Sales & Service
JPK aim for long-term relationship with our customers. Therefore we attach great importance to fast and competent service. Our service staff is highly qualified and kept up-to-date by special training programs.
JPK offer you a wide range of sources of information about us and our products, like our web site. We will organize a series of JPK workshops as a platform for information exchange in the latest fields of nanoBio sciences.
Our sales and distribution network is fast-growing. We want to guarantee fast service on the spot.
JPK's sales strategy is to serve the German market by the own sales staff and to serve the global market via partner companies experienced in nanoequipment.
