Endothelial cells. Coloured atomic force micrograph (AFM) of the surface of living endothelial cells. Endothelial cells line all of the body's blood vessels. An atomic force microscope is used to study surface at an atomic level. An extremely fine spring-mounted probe is moved across the surface at a constant height. Any deflections are recorded and converted into a computer map of the surface.
