Authors


Abstract

In a novel approach to the study of cell mechanics, a colloidal probe AFM is combined with a fluorescence microscope to investigate the mechanical properties and release from polymeric microcapsules and to correlate these data with release upon intracellular incorporation and cell-induced stresses.
