The advent of high-speed atomic force microscopy (HS-AFM) over the recent years has opened up new horizons for the study of structure, function and dynamics of biological molecules. HS-AFM is capable of 1000 times faster imaging than conventional AFM. This circumstance uniquely enables the observation of the dynamics of all the molecules present in the imaging area. Over the last 10 years, the HS-AFM has gone from a prototype-state technology that only a few labs in the world had access to (including ours) to an established commercialized technology that is present in tens of labs around the world. In this protocol chapter we share with the readers our practical know-how on high resolution HS-AFM imaging.
