Title: Microelectromechanical system (MEMS)
Description: Electron micrographs of the NIST 'cell puller,' which measures the mechanical properties of a living cell. After the cell spreads and adheres to the center of the 200-micrometer-wide circular platform, half of the platform is pulled slowly away, while a sensor connected to the other half measures the force on the cell.

*MSEL, MEMS
