CellHesion module setup on Zeiss

The CellHesion® module bridges the worlds of scanning probe and optical microscopy with the investigation of cell adhesion and cell mechanics phenomena. It allows the quantitative determination of cellular adhesion parameters with an unparalleled accuracy and reproducibility. As an add-on to the NanoWizard® it combines the capabilities of the BioAFM with precise adhesion force measurements and all optical microscopy features simultaneously.
