Asylum Research and Micra Nanotecnologia announced today that they have entered into a new distribution agreement that will enable Asylum to extend its global reach and promote its products in Latin America. Based in Mexico City, Micra Nanotecnologia, is the most experienced microscopy distributor in Latin America, with over two decades specializing in providing atomic force microscopes and other microscopy instrumentation. They will sell, install, and support Asylum's complete line of scanning probe/atomic force microscopes, including the Cypher™ AFM and the MFP-3D™ Family of AFMs.
Carlos Segovia, President of Micra Nanotecnologia, commented, "We are excited about our partnership with Asylum Research, the technology leader for atomic force and scanning probe microscopy. Many leading nanoscience researchers are located in Latin America and we look forward to working with them supporting Asylum's products. The Cypher AFM is the most exciting and highest resolution AFM on the market, and the MFP-3D is the most versatile AFM available, especially with its biological accessories, instrumented NanoIndenter capability, and the new Ztherm™ thermal analysis option."
Added John Green, Asylum's EVP for Sales, "Micra Nanotecnologia has had a long history of success in not only selling, but also effectively supporting microscopy instrumentation. They are an excellent partner for us and we anticipate a long and mutually beneficial relationship that will further increase our market share and user base across Latin America."
About Asylum Research
Asylum Research is the technology leader in atomic force and scanning probe microscopy (AFM/SPM) for both materials and bioscience applications. Founded in 1999, we are an employee owned company dedicated to innovative instrumentation for nanoscience and nanotechnology, with over 250 years combined AFM/SPM experience among our staff. 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), thermal analysis, 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 and easy integration with most commercially-available inverted optical microscopes.
Asylum’s new Cypher AFM is the world’s first 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.
