Asylum Research Offers AFM Class
Sep 2010
SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Sept. 28, 2010 — Asylum Research, the technology leader in scanning probe/atomic force microscopy (AFM/SPM) announces its AFM in Biology class to be held Nov. 3-5, 2010, in Santa Barbara.

The class is open to all AFM users who want to increase their knowledge of the technology in biological and life sciences applications. A new high-resolution imaging lab on the company’s Cypher AFM has been added to the curriculum. The class, which is now in its 12th session, combines lecture with hands-on sessions for personal instruction and interaction with the Asylum technical staff.

“We cover all the essential AFM topics that biologists need and want to learn about – from sample preparation to advanced imaging and force measurements,” said Sophia Hohlbauch, applications scientist. “The breadth of AFM experience of our staff is unsurpassed – both our president and CEO participate, and class attendees have access to all of our scientific staff. The class is fun, with a good mix of lecture and equipment time.”

Former student Dr. Xiaohui (Frank) Zhang of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Shanghai said, “It was such a wonderful experience at [Asylum Research]! Many thanks again for all the help and courtesy extended to me. I will for sure send my students to future Asylum bio classes.”

Flame Burgmann of Australia-based CSIRO added, “Thanks again for a great course, it really was very useful and gave us all some valuable information!”

The three-day course is held twice a year. Topics include sample prep, force measurements, and imaging of DNA, proteins, lipids and live cells. Hands-on labs will be done on the MFP-3D Stand Alone, MFP-3D-BIO and the Cypher AFM. Class size is limited. A PDF of the registration form can be downloaded from the Asylum Research website at
