Webinar : From Correlated, High-Resolution Imaging of Single Biomolecules to Investigating Cell Mechanics

With guest speaker Dr Hermann Schillers, University of M√ľnster, Germany

Date: Thursday 18 June, 1am, AEST


The BioScope ResolveTM is Bruker's latest advancement in atomic force microscopy (AFM) for biological research. Specifically designed to be integrated and synchronised with optical microscopy, including fluorescence, confocal microscopy, and super-resolution imaging, Bruker will describe how the BioScope Resolve is providing new methods of studying cell mechanical properties and investigating the mechanisms involved in mechanotransduction.

Sensitive High Resolution Imaging of Submolecular Structures

Bruker's PeakForce Tapping technology allows consistent, routine imaging of soft biological structures, membranes and biologically significant molecules in their native liquid environment at the highest possible resolution.

High resolution imaging of soft structures requires delicate control of the AFM probe and sample interaction. PeakForce Tapping allows direct control of the tip/sample forces and imaging with the lightest contact forces, and the highest resolutions across all length scales from whole cells to submolecular structures.

In a recent application note Bruker have demonstrated not only high resolution imaging, but how imaging force plays a critical role in the measured size of soft structures.

PeakForce Tapping technology with ScanAsyst automatic imaging optimisation provide not only the best possible measurement capability, but also the ease of use required for a routine imaging platform, and is avialable on all Bruker Bio-AFM systems including the new BioScope Resolve, FastScan Bio and MultiMode 8.

The spatial arrangement of the individual protein molecules on the surface of the virus capsid, also known as the capsomere, is clearly visible in the AFM image (ScanAsyst Fluid + probe, k~0.7 N/m)
