AFM Workshop at the University of Michigan
May 7-8, 2019
Increase Your AFM Knowledge
Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) is a powerful tool for nanoscale label-free imaging of cells, tissues, biomolecules, and novel materials in-situ. Video-rate AFM further enables direct imaging of dynamic cell and molecular processes. This workshop covers applications of modern video-rate AFM for cell and biomolecular imaging, as well as biophysical measurements such as force spectroscopy and cellular stiffness measurements. The workshop will also include a hands-on demonstration of select samples on an Asylum Research Cypher VRS Video-Rate AFM. The workshop is appropriate for both experienced AFM users as well as less experienced researchers who would like to learn more about how AFM could impact their projects.
