Scanning Probe Microscopies, particularly AFM (Atomic Force Microscopy), appear to be very useful tools for visualizing biological structures. Their exceptional features are: resolution down to atomic scale, non invasive method, no manipulation of the sample, physiological conditions of operation. But many problems remain to be solved for routine applications in the biomedical field. Here these problems are treated and suitable optical methods for making more reliable the application of Scanning Probe Microscopy to biological preparations are illustrated and discussed.
