No other AFM matches its performance and versatility for polymer science research and development
Get special pricing when you purchase our Cypher ES Polymer Edition, which comes complete with all the tools and techniques for optimizing your polymer research.
The Cypher ES Polymer Edition includes:
⁃ Routinely achieves higher resolution than ordinary AFMs
⁃ Fastest scanning gives results in seconds instead of minutes
⁃ Makes all tapping mode techniques simpler to operate
⁃ Makes imaging more stable, even when changing temperature
⁃ Makes nanomechanical imaging modes more quantitative
⁃ Heats samples at up to 250°C in controlled gas environments
⁃ No-hassle operation without extra controllers, cables, and tubing
⁃ Captures high-speed force curves for storage modulus mapping
⁃ Captures every curve, including both deflection and Z sensor
⁃ Supports many indentation models, including Hertz, DMT, Sneddon, and JKR
⁃ The fastest nanomechanical mapping mode (>20 Hz line rates)
⁃ Quantitatively maps both storage modulus and loss tangent
⁃ Operates over a wide modulus range (~50 kPa - 300 GPa)
⁃ Quantitatively maps both storage modulus and loss modulus
⁃ Best suited for higher modulus materials (1 GPa - 300 GPa)
⁃ Automatically optimizes imaging parameters before the scan even starts
⁃ Get great data from the first scan line with no tip or sample damage

"Asylum’s Cypher is clearly the best choice for polymer research. When I compared Cypher to the alternatives, it became very obvious that Asylum Research is far ahead of their competitors in pushing the limits of AFM performance and developing tools for nanomechanical measurements."
