(2017): Characterization of Cell Scaffolds by Atomic Force Microscopy
POLYMERS-BASEL. 2017; 9(8): FullText FullText_BOKU

Abstract:
This review reports on the use of the atomic force microscopy (AFM) in the investigation of cell scaffolds in recent years. It is shown how the technique is able to deliver information about the scaffold surface properties (e.g., topography), as well as about its mechanical behavior (Youngxxxs modulus, viscosity, and adhesion). In addition, this short review also points out the utilization of the atomic force microscope technique beyond its usual employment in order to investigate another type of basic questions related to materials physics, chemistry, and biology. The final section discusses in detail the novel uses that those alternative measuring modes can bring to this field in the future.
