Application Note: Atomic Force Microscopy - Imaging of Cell Surfaces
9 November 2012

The alpha300 A from WITec combines a scientific optical microscope with a Scanning Probe Microscope. This unique combination is indispensible, when investigating highly transparent specimens in life science. In this application note the capabilities of the alpha300 A are shown by examining Hela cells. The resulting high resolution AFM images revealed many more details on the cell surface than a comparative optical image.
