Started by former employees of Digital Instruments (now Veeco), Asylum Research opened its doors in April, 1999 with no venture capital funding. We are a company dedicated to innovative instrumentation for nanoscience and nanotechnology, with over 200+ years combined Atomic Force Microscope (AFM)/Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) experience from our scientists, engineers and software developers. Asylum Research shipped its first product within six months of its founding. Our flagship product, the MFP-3D, represents next generation AFM technology today, with unprecedented precision and image clarity.
Our instruments are used for a variety of nanoscience applications in material science, 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. We are dedicated to providing the most technically advanced AFM for researchers that want to take their experiments to the next level.
The MFP-3D AFM is available in two configurations; the stand-alone instrument (MFP-3D-SA) or the inverted optical microscope configuration (MFP-3D-BIO). Please visit our website at www.asylumresearch.co.uk for more details.
