Atomic force microscopy: a tool to analyze the structural organization of pathogenic protozoa.

The fine structure of parasitic protozoa has been the subject of intense investigation with the use of electron microscopy. The recent development of atomic force microscopy (AFM) and all of the techniques associated with AFM has created new ways to further analyze the structure of cells. In this review, the various, presently-available modalities of AFM… CONTINUE READING
