Poliomyelitis virus investigation using scanning tunneling and atomic force microscope is performed. Virus particles are immobilized on the surface of different substrates (mica, HOPG, gold, silver, titanium oxide). The sensitivity of scanning probe microscopy methods to detect virus particles is estimated.
