Santa Barbara, CA - Asylum Research, the technology leader in scanning probe and atomic force microscopy (SPM/AFM) will provide both educators and equipment for the Marine Biological Laboratory Physiology Course being held at Woods Hole, MA June 9 through July 29.
The Cypher(TM) Atomic Force Microscope
(AFM), the world's highest resolution and fastest AFM, will be on-site for instruction and hands-on research, including investigation of microtubules, severing proteins that form clusters on microtubules, dyneins, formins binding to microtubules, and catalyzing actin polymerization. These techniques will be demonstrated on the surface and in vitro. For researchers not enrolled in the course, the Cypher AFM will be available for individual demonstrations when not being used for class.
"We are looking forward to using the Cypher AFM for the course," said Christoph Schmidt, Professor of Physics Georg-August-Universität and class instructor. "We are also extremely pleased that Asylum Research scientists and co-founders will be giving lectures and assisting the students throughout the course. Their AFM expertise in biology and physics is unsurpassed and will be invaluable to all of the students."
Jason Cleveland, CEO of Asylum Research, noted, "We are very excited about participating in the very prestigious MBL Course. It's been something we've wanted to do for a long time and we're really looking forward to this collaboration with Dr. Schmidt."

About Asylum Research
See what our users are saying about Asylum Research at: www.asylumresearch.com/References/Testimonials.shtml 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(TM) 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(TM) tips.
