Abstract:
Asylum Research, an Oxford Instruments company, invites all Cypher™ and MFP-3D™ AFM users to enter their best AFM data, including images, force curves, or videos, in the Asylum Research Image Contest. Each scientist will receive an Asylum gift pack just for sending in their images. An Apple iPad will be awarded at the close of each quarter to the winning image that best represents excellence in science and the "cool" factor as judged by our team of applications scientists. Select entries will also be featured in the Asylum Research website gallery.

"Our customers do amazing work with our AFMs and we'd like to help share the incredible
results," said Ben Ohler, Director of Marketing. "We invite all of our users to send in their
most unique, impressive, and captivating images, and that includes any data on force
measurements and videos."

Researchers may submit as many images as they want and every image will be considered
for the quarterly grand prize. Details and the online submission form can be found at
www.AsylumResearch.com/ImageContest. All winners of the quarterly iPad prize will be
notified by email. The first quarterly prize will be announced June 1.

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, Japan,
Shanghai and Taiwan.
