Atomic Force Microscopy of bulk tendon samples: affect of location and fixation on tissue ultrastructure.

Abstract:

Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) is a surface characterisation technique which analyses topology. To date, AFM studies of tissue ultrastructure have focussed on single collagen fibrils extracted from different tissues prior to analysis. Using sample preparation techniques used in electron microscopy studies, this work uses AFM to analyse the collagen ultrastructure of bulk samples from bovine deep digital flexor tendons (DDFTs). DDFT ultrastructure in regions of the tendon which experience diffe...
