Home > Press > Asylum Research Hosts a New Webinar May 22: “Getting Started with AFM in Biology –It's Easier Than You Think ”

Abstract:
Asylum Research, an Oxford Instruments company, will host a new webinar on May 22 - "Getting Started with AFM in Biology - It's Easier Than You Think". Asylum Applications Scientist Dr. Iréne Revenko, who has over 19 years of teaching and training AFM in biology, will be presenting and taking questions. The webinar is ideal for biologists that are new to AFM or for AFM experts starting to study biology.

Asylum Research Hosts a New Webinar May 22: “Getting Started with AFM in Biology –It's Easier Than You Think ”

Santa Barbara, CA | Posted on April 23rd, 2013

The webinar will cover topics that are critical for successful AFM imaging including sample preparation, choosing the correct cantilever, imaging in fluids and choosing the correct measurement mode. These will be presented in the context of four case studies of typical biological samples:
1. Imaging DNA in liquid - including routine helix resolution 

2. Imaging living cells in liquid
3. Measuring Young's modulus of living cells 

4. Unfolding forces in Titin

"There are some basic principles that help ensure successful AFM in biology," said Dr. Revenko. "While biological samples can be complex, this webinar will show how complexity can be managed with extremely useful tips, tricks, and techniques to make AFM in biology easier. Ultimately, the goal of the webinar is to give researchers the confidence to repeat these experiments and then extend them to fit their own research."

Registration for the 8:00am session is at https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/702661318 . Registration for the 4:00pm session is at https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/707007462 . Attendance will be limited, so early registration is recommended.

About Asylum Research, an Oxford Instruments company
Asylum Research is the technology leader in atomic force microscopy AFM for both materials and bioscience applications, dedicated to innovative instrumentation for nanoscience and nanotechnology. Founded in 1999, Asylum Research has over 300 years combined AFM/SPM experience among our staff. Asylum Research AFMs 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 MFP-3DTM has 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.
The Cypher TMAFM is the highest resolution fast scanning AFM, now with environmental control. Cypher provides low-drift closed loop atomic resolution for the most accurate images and measurements possible today, point defect atomic resolution, >20X faster AC imaging with small cantilevers, Spot-OnTM 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 with the industry-best five-year warranty, legendary product and applications support, and global sales and service, including offices in Germany, UK, and Taiwan. Asylum Research is dedicated to providing the most technically advanced AFMs for researchers who want to take their experiments to the next level.
