Asylum Research AFM Equipment Will Feature in MBL Course

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.

Cypher AFM from Asylum Research

The Cypher™ 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."
