Atomic Force Microscopy has found broad use in the biological sciences. It is an indispensable tool for both high resolution imaging of individual molecules, cells, tissues, viruses and biomaterials. Since AFM is also relatively non-destructive and requires minimal sample preparation (i.e. no coating/fixing/labeling), it is ideally suited to visualize
dynamic biomolecular processes at the nanoscale.
We will present relevant data to illustrate the potential of Asylum Research’s AFMs in virus research.
