Scanning capillary or ion-conducting microscopy is a unique tool that allows one to obtain the 3D morphology of biological objects in a natural environment in a non-contact manner. At the same time, sample preparation is simple – there is no need to introduce fluorescent labels or fix the sample. The most important advantage of the method is that it is possible to monitor the dynamic processes of living cells and tissues. The device of a capillary microscope allows not only delicate visualization of soft biological objects, but also obtaining data on the biomechanical properties of the sample. This paper will discuss the intricacies of a capillary microscope.
