Biological Tissue and Surfaces Research

afm

Main focus is the investigation of biological tissue with high-resolution techniques (AFM and single molecule localization microscopy)

a) to provide new assisting tools for clinical diagnostics and

b) to prove the success of a therapy at molecular-mechanistic scale.

In addition to it surfaces of technical materials which are typically used in health care (eg. implants, medical instruments, floorings in a hospital) are morphologically characterized with microscopic techniques to identify weak spots in daily routine and potential for enhancements.

RegStore

Fluorescence spectroscopically & AFM characterization of the surface of methane storage cells powered by bacterial activity.

Cardio-AFM

The effects of medication and other factors on the structure of the cardiac muscle, as investigated by atomic force microscopy (AFM) on histological samples.

AFM-Pemo

Optical investigation of artefacts in AFM recordings, using very high frequency (up to 30 kHz) video recordings of the AFM tip.
