Imaging of Acidithiobacillus Ferrooxidans by AFM and Analysis of AFM Curves
The aim of the present investigation is to obtain tapping mode images of Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans and interfacial forces between Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans cells and silicon nitride tip of AFM. The effect of exposure of cells to toxic metal ions like arsenic on the morphology of the cells was investigated by the section analysis of the AFM images obtained. Effect of glutaraldehyde fixation on force curves is also analyzed.
