Abstract:
Asylum Research, the technology leader in scanning probe/atomic force microscopy (AFM/SPM) announces its Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) in Biology Class will be held January 25-27, 2012 in Santa Barbara, California. The class is open to all AFM users that want to increase their knowledge of AFM in biology and life sciences. This world-renowned class, now in its 14th session, combines lecture with hands-on sessions for personal instruction and interaction with the Asylum technical staff.

Asylum Research Offers AFM in Biology Class January 25-27, 2012

Santa Barbara, CA | Posted on November 30th, 2011

"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 Dr. Nicholas Geisse, Applications Scientist. "The breadth of AFM experience of our staff is unsurpassed - in addition, both our President and CEO participate and class attendees have access to our entire scientific staff. Because only two to three people share an instrument for the hands-on experiments, the training is invaluable."

Commented previous student Dr. Anthony Quinn of the University of Vermont Microscopy Imaging Center, "The AFM in Biology Class was very instructive. The literature, hands-on sample preparation labs, and imaging sessions on the MFP-3D-BIO™ and Cypher™ AFMs were very useful and applicable to our research endeavors. The staff was outstanding in that they made you feel like a part of a caring family - and since the class, the ongoing correspondence and assistance has also been stupendous. Thanks for the hospitality and great course!"

This three-day course is held twice a year. Topics include sample prep, imaging and force measurements on DNA, high resolution imaging of bacteriorhodopsin, force measurements and mapping, imaging and pushing lipid bilayers, and imaging live cells. Hands-on labs will be done on the MFP-3D™ Stand Alone, MFP-3D-BIO and the Cypher AFM, the world's fastest and highest resolution AFM. Class size is limited.

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, SKPM, 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 fastest and highest resolution AFM.  Cypher provides low-drift closed loop atomic resolution for the most accurate images and measurements possible today, >20X faster AC imaging for images in minutes instead of minutes or hours, Spot-On™ automated laser and photodetector 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.
