Correlative AFM with Super-Resolution, TIRF or Confocal/FLIM


Correlate biomolecules activity observed by Fluorescence (Epi and TIRF), Super Resolution Microscopy (PALM/STORM) or Confocal and Fluorescence Spectroscopy (FLIM, FRET, FCS) with the associated sample topology and mechanics observed by AFM.

Our two fluorescence-AFM correlative setups are mounted on top of Zeiss inverted microscopes. Fast AFM imaging (1 frame in few seconds) can be performed simultaneously with the fluorescence microscopy operation.
