Atomic Force Microscopy
The AFM Platform is established at the Center for Structural Biochemistry (CBS) and supports instrumental and scientific activities linked to the characterization of biological samples by means of Atomic Force Microscopy. The Platform wants to encourage the emergence of a culture addressing high resolution and high-speed imaging, the evaluation of mechanical properties and application of forces at nanoscale integrating them with a large variety of fluorescence techniques. The Platform supports, on a best effort basis, users needing AFM instrumentation and/or AFM know-how.
