Thank you all for all your help and support since (and before) the beginning of CAMiLoD operation. I would like to thank Dr. Hinz for making all these possible for us in our faculty. I also would like to specifically thank Dhaarmini and Joao for being so knowledgeable and helpful, not only during the training sessions, but also time by time when I encountered a problem running my samples

“The instructors were very knowledgeable about AFM in general and the Nanowizard specifically, and were able to provide very practical advice. It was also good that the demos involved ‘real-world’ samples to highlight some of the considerations and challenges when measuring biological samples
