Continuous depth-sensing nano-mechanical characterization of living, fixed and dehydrated cells attached on a glass substrate.

Abstract

Continuous depth-sensing nano-indentation on living, fixed and dehydrated fibroblast cells was performed using a dynamic contact module and vertically measured from a pre-contact state to the glass substrate. The nano-indentation tip-on-cell approaches took advantage of finding a contact surface, followed by obtaining a continuous nano-mechanical profile… (More)
