Atomic Force Microscopy is a powerful tool for evaluating cell mechanics.
In the recent article “Vertical Light Sheet Enhanced Side-View Imaging for AFM Cell Mechanics Studies” by Kellie Beicker, E. Timothy O’Brien III, Michael R. Falvo, Richard Superfine published in Nature Scientific Reports, the authors combine sideways imaging and a vertical light sheet illumination system integrated with AFM to achieve their results.
5 µm polystyrene beads attached to NanoWorld Arrow-TL1 tipless AFM probes were used.
