Asylum Research and Atomic Force F&E Add France Representative for AFM/SPM

(Nanowerk News) Irene Revenko, MD/PhD, of Asylum Research, has been seconded to Asylum’s continental Europe distributor, Atomic Force F&E, as their representative in France for atomic force/scanning probe microscopy (AFM/SPM). Dr. Revenko will strengthen support for all French speaking users and potential customers of Atomic Force F&E. She has extensive knowledge and over 15 years experience with biological, medical, pharmaceutical and materials applications of AFM/SPM. Dr. Revenko is also an expert at sample prep for these applications, including imaging in fluid.
Dr. Revenko will be scheduling visits to laboratories and institutions in France and elsewhere, and attending and giving talks at conferences and meetings. If you will be attending meetings/conferences in France and other European locations, please visit the Atomic Force/Asylum Research booth and meet Irene. She will also be very interested in discussing biological applications and hearing your feedback on our MFP-3D™ and Cypher™ product lines.
Ludger Weisser, Managing Director for Atomic Force F&E, commented, “We are extremely pleased to have Irene stationed in France. Her presence will increase our market visibility and better assist all of our existing customers in French speaking areas. Irene will also strengthen our application group in Europe, as well as the widely respected support provided by Atomic Force.”
Dr. Revenko added, “Avoir une présence en France pour aider nos clients actuels est important. Cela nous permettra aussi de faire connaitre plus amplement notre technologie aux utilisateurs d’AFM. Ayant toujours travaillé avec les gens d’Atomic Force depuis mes débuts en industrie, cette intégration dans leur équipe est simple et confortable. ”
If you would like to schedule a presentation or AFM demonstration at your facility, or have questions or need applications assistance from Dr. Revenko – or just want to chat about your application with a world-leading AFM/SPM technologist – Irene’s contact information is listed below:

About Asylum Research
Asylum Research is a technology leader for atomic force and scanning probe microscopy (AFM/SPM) for both materials and bioscience applications. Founded in 1999, we are a company dedicated to innovative instrumentation for nanoscience and nanotechnology, with over 200 years combined AFM/SPM experience from our scientists, engineers and software developers. 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, KFM, EFM), high voltage piezoresponse force microscopy (PFM), magnetic force microscopy (MFM) with our unique variable field module, 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 for easy integration with most commercially-available inverted optical microscopes.
Asylum’s new Cypher™ AFM is the world’s first completely new small sample AFM/SPM in over a decade, and sets the new standard as the world’s highest resolution AFM. Cypher provides low-drift closed loop atomic resolution for the most accurate images and measurements possible today, rapid AC imaging with small cantilevers, Spot-On™ automated laser 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.
