AFM Webinar Series:

Atomic Force Microscopy: Characterizing Biomaterials at the Nanoscale

OVERVIEW

All events that occur in determining the biocompatibility of a biomaterial are based on molecular-scale interactions. Understanding how the properties of a biomaterial can influence these interactions has important implications, such as ensuring the successful development of medical devices and tissue scaffolds. Atomic force microscopy is an ideal technique for these molecular-scale measurements, as it not only provides nanometer-resolution 3D topography images and quantitative measurements of surface roughness and nanomechanical properties, but it can obtain this data in situ and in real-time, under near-physiological conditions. This webinar presents Veeco's latest AFM technology for biomaterials research and development, and will focus on applications for material properties characterization, biocompatibility, and tissue engineering.
