Asylum Research Offers AFM in Biology Class April 28-30, 2010

Santa Barbara, CA | Posted on March 3rd, 2010

The class is open to all Atomic Force Microscopy users that want to increase their knowledge of AFM in biology and life sciences. This world-renowned class, now in its 11th session, combines lecture with hands-on sessions for personal instruction and interaction with the Asylum technical staff.

"We cover all the essential AFM topics that biologists need and want to learn about— from sample preparation to advanced imaging and force measurements," said Sophia Hohlbauch, Applications Scientist. "The breadth of AFM experience of our staff is unsurpassed -- both our President and CEO participate and class attendees have access to all of our scientific staff. The class is fun, with a good mix of lecture and equipment time."

Commented former student Dr. Xiaohui (Frank) Zhang, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Shanghai, "It was such a wonderful experience at AR! Many thanks again for all the help and courtesy extended to me. I will for sure send my students to future Asylum Bio classes."

Added Yael Dror, Oxford University "You all did a remarkable job in all areas! I am especially grateful for your sincere willingness to help each of us and the time and energy you spent with me to help, explain, guide and think together about my results. But above all you shared with us your love of the AFM, which couldn't possibly be ignored, and gave us an insight into a very special company."

The three day course is held twice a year. Topics include sample prep, force measurements, and imaging DNA, proteins, lipids and live cells. The Asylum Research MFP-3D™ AFM is used exclusively for the hands-on sessions. Class size is limited.
