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 lowdrift
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 five-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.
