Asylum Research and Intertech Corporation announced today that they have entered into a new distribution agreement that will enable Asylum to extend its global reach and promote its products in the Russian Federation, Belarus, Georgia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Armenia, and Turkmenistan. Intertech, an American export and engineering company that specializes in providing analytical instrumentation and other products to the Former Soviet Union (FSU), will sell and support Asylum’s complete line of atomic force/scanning probe microscopes, including the Cypher™ AFM and the MFP-3D™ Family of AFMs.
Tim Kiernan, President of Intertech, commented, “We are excited about our partnership with Asylum Research, the technology leader for atomic force and scanning probe microscopy. A number of the world’s leading nanoscience researchers are located in Russia and the C.I.S. and we look forward to working with them supporting Asylum’s products. The Cypher AFM is the most exciting and highest resolution AFM on the market, and the MFP-3D is the most versatile AFM available, especially with its biological accessories, instrumented Nanoindenter capability, and the new Ztherm™ thermal analysis option.”
Added John Green, Asylum’s EVP for Sales, “Intertech has had a great deal of success in selling and supporting a wide range of surface analytical instrumentation in the FSU and is an excellent partner for us. We anticipate a long and mutually beneficial relationship that will broaden our reach and increase our user base across Europe and Asia.”
