NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The M.E. Muller Institute for Structural Biology in Basel, Switzerland, will use Veeco Instruments’ Bioscope II atomic force microscope for translational research, Veeco said today.
Under an agreement signed in the fourth quarter of 2007, MSB will use the tool for biological imaging beyond the diffraction limit of light and to measure nanomechanical properties of single biomolecules, cells, and tissues, said Sebastian Tille, Veeco’s senior life science product marketing manager.
The company said it will work with MSB to identify novel ways to apply the microscope to life sciences research.
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
