Atomic Force Microscopy for Biologists
|von V. J. Morris|
From Book News, Inc. Three British scientists introduce a versatile member of the family of technologies called scanning probe microscopes, explaining what types of apparatus are available and how they are used. They also explore the types of biological samples that have been studied, look at how successful such studies have been, and assess whether using atomic force microscopy has generated new knowledge or understanding in those areas.Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR
Synopsis Atomic force microscopy (AFM) is an emerging microscopic method for biologists which offers the magnification range of both light and electron microscope, but allows imaging under the "natural" conditions associated with the light microscope. To biologists, AFM offers the prospect of high resolution images of biological material, images of molecules and their interactions even under physiological conditions, and the study of molecular processes in living systems. This text provides a realistic...
