Abstract:
Asylum Research, the technology leader in scanning probe/atomic force microscopy (AFM/SPM), announced today that it has delivered a dual system order for a Cypher™ AFM and an MFP-3D-BIO™ AFM to the University of Melbourne's Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering.

Asylum Research Installs Dual AFMs at University of Melbourne, Australia

Raleigh, NC | Posted on August 27th, 2010

Dr. Raymond Dagastine's group will use the Asylum AFMs to develop nano-scale experiments and theories to measure and predict interactions, collisions, and coalescence between droplets and bubbles that underpin innovative applications of foams and emulsions and other soft matter materials. The approach provides a "front seat" view of how drops or bubbles collide in solution and how the physical mechanisms are dependent on the types of molecules coating their interfaces.

Dr. Dagastine commented, "We chose the combination of the Asylum MFP-3D and Cypher AFMs for their visionary design and stability, the cross compatibility of the software, and the ease of implementing specialized user controls and inputs. This coupled with Asylum's superior technical support makes the MFD-3D-BIO and Cypher the ideal combination of instruments for high-end research and surface characterization on the nano-scale. These outstanding AFMs will allow us an unprecedented opportunity to visualize the interactions and surfaces in soft matter materials through high resolution imagining on the nano to molecular scale, as well as cutting edge force measurements on the nano-scale with integration of a variety of optical characterization methods."

Shane Huntington of The Innovation Group, Asylum's representative in Australia for over a decade, commented, "As a company made up of AFM researchers, we are excited to be working with distinguished users such as Dr. Dagastine. We offer collaboration with our customers on the details of their research and stand ready with long-term service and support. The Innovation Group has installed more AFM systems in Australia than the current reps of all other AFM companies combined."
