Asylum Research Announces Ben Ohler as AFM Business Manager

Santa Barbara, CA | Posted on May 29th, 2013

"We are very excited that Ben has joined the Asylum Research team," commented Roger Proksch, President of Asylum Research. "Ben brings with him numerous years of AFM and product line management experience which will enable and accelerate our continuing growth. Ben also has an excellent applications background, so he understands the needs of researchers. He can take this knowledge and translate it to new product development that will allow us to continue our technological leadership while also expanding into new and emerging markets. I might add, he has hit the ground running and with only a few months at Asylum, Ben has successfully led the launch of our new MFP-3D Origin™ AFM."

"I'm thrilled to be with Asylum Research," added Ohler. "It's fantastic to be a part of a team so utterly committed and passionate about producing the highest performance and highest quality AFMs and providing a truly unequalled standard of customer support. I'm looking forward to contributing to our continued growth."

Before joining Asylum, Dr. Ohler held the position of Product Line Manager within the AFM group of Bruker (previously Veeco) for five years and Applications and Development Scientist for eight years. He received his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the University of California Santa Barbara where his research focused on the biophysics of neurodegenerative disorders. He has numerous peer-reviewed publications and is a co-author on five patents in the field of AFM.

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-3D™ 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-BIO™ is the only full capability AFM integrated with commercial inverted optical microscopes for advanced bioscience research. In addition, our MFP NanoIndenter™ offers the only true instrumented indenting for quantitative measurements.
 
The Cypher™ 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-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 best warranties in the industry, ranging from two to five years, along with unmatched customer support. Asylum has global sales and service offices in Germany, UK, Shanghai and Taiwan.
