Home > Press > Asylum Research Introduces the MFP-3D OriginTM AFM – A High Performance, Affordable Atomic Force Microscope

Abstract:
Asylum Research, an Oxford Instruments company, announces the new MFP-3D Origin Atomic Force Microscope (AFM). The MFP-3D Origin is at the intersection of performance and affordability in the Asylum Research MFP-3DTM AFM family. The MFP-3D Origin features the technical excellence, innovation, and world-class customer support that is the trademark of every Asylum AFM. With full upgrade potential to the MFP-3D and its complete range of accessories, the MFP-3D Origin is the best place to start with atomic force microscopy.

Asylum Research Introduces the MFP-3D OriginTM AFM – A High Performance, Affordable Atomic Force Microscope

Santa Barbara, CA | Posted on May 8th, 2013

"We are very excited that we can now bring the high performance capabilities of the MFP-3D to a larger group of researchers," commented Ben Ohler, AFM Business Manager. "Since not all customers require its most advanced accessories and features, we were able to reduce costs there instead of sacrificing core performance. This is in stark contrast to some competitors who have taken old technology and repackaged it as entry-level AFMs with lower performance. We have heard many times over that ‘if I had the funds, I would buy an Asylum'. The MFP-3D Origin allows limited research budgets to be focused on what's most important - leading closed-loop resolution and performance, robust reliability, and of course, the unmatched customer support you get when you become an Asylum customer."

The performance and modern features of the MFP-3D Origin surpass all competitors in its class. It is based on the technology-leading MFP-3D AFM, known for closed-loop precision, high-resolution imaging, and low-noise force measurements. The MFP-3D Origin offers far more than just the basic scan modes. It includes many advanced modes-nanolithography, Dual ACTM Mode, and piezoresponse force microscopy- at no extra charge. Additional advanced functionality is easy to add for optional modes such as conductive AFM, AM-FM Viscoelastic Mapping for nanomechanical analysis, scanning tunnelling microscopy (STM), and scanning thermal microscopy (SThM).

As your research grows, so can the MFP-3D Origin's capabilities. The MFP-3D Origin can easily be upgraded to the full MFP-3D to take advantage of the numerous environmental and advanced application accessories. In addition, the MFP-3D Origin carries a full two year warranty - the best warranty in its class. It's a smart investment in a proven AFM platform that will serve you well for years to come.

About Asylum Research, an Oxford Instruments company
Asylum Research is the technology leader in atomic force microscopy 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 family of AFMs sets the standard for AFM technology, with unprecedented precision and flexibility. Four configurations now comprise the MFP-3D family. The MFP-3D Origin, the most affordable member, offers performance and full upgrade potential. The full MFP-3D provides performance with the maximum versatility of a wide range of modes and accessories. The MFP-3D-BIOTM is the only full capability AFM integrated with commercial inverted optical microscopes for advanced bioscience research. In addition, our MFP NanoIndenterTM offers the only true instrumented indenting for quantitative measurements.

The CypherTM AFM 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 best warranties in the industry, ranging from two to five years, along with unmatched customer support.
