Atomic Force Microscopy of Microbial Cells

Atomic force microscopy (AFM) has
opened exciting new avenues in
microbiology and biophysics for
probing microbial cells. The
unprecedented capabilities of AFM
can be summarized as follows:
i) imaging surface topography with
nanometer lateral resolution and under
physiological conditions; ii) measuring
local physical properties such as
adhesion forces and elasticity. This
application note describes a
convenient sample preparation
