Monitoring the resonance spectrum of cells using the atomic force microscope

Ivan Benitez, Vincent T. Moy

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


A biosensor using the Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) was developed by growing adherent cells on one side of the cantilever. Cells grown on the cantilever surface resulted in the appearance of additional peaks around the maximum resonance frequency of the cantilever. Changes in resonance response were also monitored after treating the cells with a chemical fixative that alters cell state.
