Asylum Research, the technology leader in atomic force and scanning probe microscopy (AFM/SPM) for both materials and bioscience applications, is celebrating its 10 year anniversary this week.
Founded in 1999 to bring scientists superior AFM/SPM tools for their research, Asylum pioneered commercialization of picoNewton force spectroscopy, shipping its first product, the Molecular Force Probe (MFP™), within six months of its founding. Asylum has continued that leadership with the versatile MFP-3D™ family of AFMs and the new Cypher™ AFM, the world's highest resolution AFM.
Asylum is an employee-owned company dedicated to innovative instrumentation for nanoscience and nanotechnology, with over 250 years combined AFM/SPM experience from our scientists and engineers. Asylum is represented worldwide with direct offices in the USA, Germany, UK, Japan and China, with representatives and customers across the globe. Asylum offers the best customer-protection plan and lowest cost of ownership of any AFM company with its exclusive two-year, bumper-to-bumper warranty and six-month money-back guarantee.
"Over the past ten years, Asylum Research has become synonymous with unrivaled technical advancement, invention, and customer support. We are proud of our long-term growth, stability and technical achievements. As we reflect back on the past decade, we especially thank our many users for their loyalty and confidence in our products and support. Our success is due in large part to them - something we will never forget," said Asylum President and co-founder Roger Proksch.
"Our focus on research and development has been a keystone of our company, and we will continue to work closely with customers and aggressively invest in ground-breaking new technologies as we enter our second decade. Asylum is dedicated to providing the most technically advanced AFMs for researchers who want to take their experiments to the next level," added CEO and co-founder Jason Cleveland.
About Asylum Research
Asylum Research is the technology leader for atomic force and scanning probe microscopy (AFM/SPM) for both materials and bioscience applications. Founded in 1999, we are a company dedicated to innovative instrumentation for nanoscience and nanotechnology, with over 250 years combined AFM/SPM experience from our scientists, engineers and software developers.
Our instruments are used for a variety of nanoscience applications in material science, physics, polymers, chemistry, biomaterials, and bioscience, including single molecule mechanical experiments on DNA, protein unfolding and polymer elasticity, as well as force measurements for biomaterials, chemical sensing, polymers, colloidal forces, adhesion, and more.
Asylum’s product line offers imaging and measurement capabilities for a wide range of samples, including advanced techniques such as electrical characterization (CAFM, KFM, EFM), high voltage piezoresponse force microscopy (PFM), magnetic force microscopy (MFM) with our unique variable field module, quantitative nanoindenting, and a wide range of environmental accessories and application-ready modules.
Asylum’s MFP-3D™ set the standard for AFM technology, with unprecedented precision and flexibility. The MFP-3D is the first AFM with true independent piezo positioning in all three axes, combined with low noise closed-loop feedback sensor technology. The MFP-3D offers both top and bottom sample viewing for easy integration with most commercially-available inverted optical microscopes.
Asylum’s new Cypher™ AFM is the world’s first completely new small sample AFM/SPM in over a decade, and sets the new standard as the world’s highest resolution AFM. Cypher provides low-drift closed loop atomic resolution for the most accurate images and measurements possible today, rapid AC imaging with small cantilevers, Spot-On™ automated laser alignment for easy setup, integrated thermal, acoustic and vibration control, and broad support for all major AFM/SPM scanning modes and capabilities.
Asylum Research offers the lowest cost of ownership of any AFM company. Ask us about our industry-best 2-year warranty, our legendary product and applications support, and our exclusive 6-month money-back satisfaction guarantee. We are dedicated to providing the most technically advanced AFMs for researchers who want to take their experiments to the next level. Asylum Research also distributes third party cantilevers from Olympus, Nanoworld/Nanosensors, and our own MFM and iDrive tips.
