Instead, AFM has emerged as a tool to characterize mucoadhesive interactions between mucins and polymers. J. Cleary et al. 30 A 20 µm glass microsphere modified with a layer of Pluronic-PAA copolymer was attached to the AFM cantilever to form a colloidal probe. A BSM layer was prepared by attaching a layer of mucin onto an epoxy adhesive layer deposited on a glass plate. The adhesive force is observed to be highest at pH values of 4–5, coinciding with the pKa of the carboxylic groups, and decreased at both lower and higher pH values (Fig.
