AFM measures the atomic level forces between a sharp probing tip attached to a cantilever spring and a sample surface. AFM is particularly attractive to cell biologists as it can yield high resolution spatial images of live cells under near physiological conditions as well as evaluate the physical parameters in biological materials, such as material properties and binding forces.
