Cypher AFM for Imaging Loosely Bound DNA on Mica
This video gives insight into a common phenomenon observed when imaging DNA. A loosely bound DNA sample on mica is imaged using the Cypher high resolution AFM from Asylum Research. An interesting feature of this video is that the DNA strand seems to break during the scan, but upon closer examination it remains undamaged and the breaks are the result of taking still images of a dynamic process.
