Fast Scanning AFM Imaging of DNA on Mica Using the Cypher AFM from Asylum Research
In this video a loosely bound DNA sample on mica is imaged using the Cypher AFM from Asylum Research. The interesting feature of this video is that the DNA strand appears to break during the scan. However, upon closer examination, what really happens is that the DNA actually remains undamaged and the apparent breaks are a consequence of taking still images of a dynamic process.
