Scanning capillary microscopy (or scanning ion-conductance microscopy) is a scanning probe microscopy technique based on the use of nanocapillaries. Important advantages of SCM over other methods are its non-violent action on a studied objects during measurements and a possibility to conduct studies in the natural environment (in liquid). Therefore, this method has become widely used in biological and medical research. Another unique advantage of SCM is the use of dual-channel capillaries which allows the technique to be used as a sensor, e.g. for measuring reactive oxygen species close to a cell.
