About Asylum Research, an Oxford Intruments company
Asylum Research is the technology leader in atomic force probe microscopy (AFM) for both materials and bioscience applications. Founded in 1999,we are 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, data storage and semiconductors, 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.
Technological Leadership and Leading Innovation
and accuracy has been the driving force behind the pioneering AFM instrument innovations in flexure design, lowest-noise closed loop sensors, and full
digital control. These are now requirements in any research grade AFM. Our
open software, based in IGOR Pro, allows researchers the ease-of-use, and power
and flexibility to take their experiments to the next level. These
innovations, just to name a few, are offered in our two main product lines-the Cypher™ and
MFP-3D™ AFM Families.

the Highest Resolution Fast Scanning AFM – Now with Environmental Control
AFM is the highest resolution fast scanning AFM now with environmental control.
Cypher provides low-drift, lowest noise, closed loop atomic
point defect resolution for the most accurate images and measurements
possible today, >20X faster AC imaging with small cantilevers, Spot-On™
automated laser and photodetector alignment for easy setup, and integrated
thermal, acoustic and vibration control.
Unmatched Precision, Power and Versatility
The MFP-3D sets the standard for AFM technology for larger samples with
unprecedented precision and flexibility. The MFP-3D is the first AFM with true
independent piezo positioning in all three axes, combined with low
feedback sensor technology, and numerous environmental accessories, making
it the most versatile and powerful AFM available. Four models comprise the
More Built-in and Advanced
Our AFMs support
all major AFM/SPM scanning modes and capabilities with many exclusive
advanced scanning modes for many different applications:
AC™, a multifrequency technique for enhanced image and property contrast
for easy imaging in fluid
characterization (CAFM, EFM, SKPM)
Strain Microscopy for energy research applications
Force Microscopy for high voltage, crosstalk-free measurements
- Accurate, quantitative,
nanomechanical characterization techniques, including AM-FM,
and many more tools in our NanomechPro™

Cost of Ownership and Industry-best Warranties
Asylum now includes the industry's only five-year warranty free of charge with all Cypher, MFP-3D and NanoIndenter Systems. The MFP-3D Origin™ includes a full two-year warranty – still best in class among other AFMs in its price range. The warranties cover all parts and labor, including shipping and any required travel expenses, for problems occurring due to normal usage. The cost is $0 to the user, making Asylum AFMs the lowest in cost of ownership. Because of our robust, reliable systems, you can be sure that the cost of ownership will remain low even beyond the warranty period. In the unlikely event that a repair is needed, you can be assured of the fastest turnaround time in the industry.
