(Nanowerk News) As part of its ongoing expansion, Asylum Research, the technology leader in scanning probe and atomic force microscopy (SPM/AFM), announced today that it has appointed Spectra Research Corporation (SRC) as its exclusive distributor in Canada. SRC has served nanotechnology and surface science markets in Canada since 1993. They offer sales, service and technical support across the country. SRC can be contacted at 905-890-0555, or via their website: www.spectraresearch.com.
"We are very excited about adding Spectra Research to our family of world-wide distributors," said John Green, Executive Vice President of Sales for Asylum Research. "Their extensive experience in AFM, materials and life science, and scientific instrumentation, will be a great asset to Asylum Research and our ability to help prospective customers make informed decisions."
Paul Greenwood, President of SRC, added, "We are very pleased to be working with Asylum Research in Canada. Asylum has a great reputation for innovative AFM technology, and a legacy of customer satisfaction that is unmatched in the industry. This addition is a good fit with our focus on Canadian markets that include nanotech, surface science and materials characterization".
Spectra Research is a subsidiary of Allan Crawford Associates (ACA), one of Canada's largest distributors of electronic components, test equipment, and integrated networking solutions, with headquarters in Ontario, Canada.
About Asylum Research

Asylum Research is the technology leader in atomic force and scanning probe microscopy (AFM/SPM) for both materials and bioscience applications. Founded in 1999, we are an employee-owned company dedicated to innovative instrumentation for nanoscience and nanotechnology, with over 300 years combined AFM/SPM experience among our staff. 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, SKPM, EFM), high voltage piezoresponse force microscopy (PFM), thermal analysis, 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 and easy integration with most commercially-available inverted optical microscopes.
Asylum's Cypher AFM sets the new standard as the world's fastest and highest resolution AFM. Cypher provides low-drift closed loop atomic resolution for the most accurate images and measurements possible today, >20X faster AC imaging for images in minutes instead of minutes or hours, 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 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.
