Measuring the stiffness of soft culture surfaces & 3D hydrogels using AFM

LCN researchers at King’s College have devised a new method to measure the stiffness of soft culture surfaces & 3D hydrogels using atomic force microscopy (AFM) force spectroscopy carrying out much of the work at the LCN in Bloomsbury. The research 'Measuring the elastic modulus of soft culture surfaces and three-dimensional hydrogels using atomic force microscopy', was recently published in Nature Protocols, has been summed up by PI Dr Eileen Gentleman on her lab twitter account.
