Abstract:
Ion conductance microscopy (ICM)1 is useful for obtaining contact-free images of the surface topography and has been used for imaging cultured cells under liquid conditions2. The approach-retract scanning (ARS) mode is a new mode of ICM, which is especially powerful for imaging samples with steep slopes3. To examine the applicability of the ARS mode for imaging biological samples with greater height gaps, dense collagen fibril networks were examined by ICM4.
