Fixed Fibroblast Cells
Fixed fibroblast cells (MRC-5 cell line) acquired in contact mode using the 200 µm long Olympus TR400PB cantilever. The cells were grown in a Falcon petri dish and fixed with 4% glutaraldehyde. They were imaged with the new Petri Dish Holder Accessory on the MFP-3D-BIO. Brightfield illumination was initially used to locate cells of interest and accurate position the cantilever over the cells (a). AFM Deflection image (b) and 3D rendered topographic image using Argyle (c). 70 µm AFM scan size.
