AFM and biological membranes

JPK Instruments, a world-leading manufacturer of nanoanalytic instrumentation for research in life sciences and soft matter, reports on how AFM and advanced fluorescence microscopy is being applied in the study of biological membranes in the Centre de Biochimie Structurale (CBS, CNRS and INSERM affiliated) in Montpellier. The CBS includes a research group focused on single molecule physics. Dr Pierre-Emmanuel Milhiet runs a team which applies AFM and advanced fluorescence microscopies (single molecule tracking and single-molecule localization microscopy or SMLM) in the study of both structure and dynamics of biological membranes. Dr Milhiet selected the JPK system because “It is a very stable machine for a stand-alone AFM allowing single protein resolution to be achieved on biological membranes. The HyperDrive mode is especially suitable for this purpose. Also, JPK’s Tip-Assisted Optics stage can be combined with tip scanning which is very useful for compensating the drift of the sample stage which may be observed during long-term SMLM acquisition.”
