The impact of plastic on our health is generally hard to quantify. One question to answer is how far plastic particles can penetrate the body and therefore how they penetrate cells. Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) in combination with fluorescence microscopy can be used to better understand the interaction between micro sized objects and lipid bilayers, functioning as model systems for microparticles interacting with lipid membranes.
