Asylum Research AFM nano-research tool on CSI: Miami

May 5, 2008 — Aside from performing cutting edge research in nanotechnology, the Asylum Research MFP-3D atomic force microscope (AFM) was in the spotlight on the CBS hit television show CSI: Miami. The AFM was featured in the episode 619 “Rock and a Hard Place” on May 5, 2008.

Late last year, Asylum released the Piezo Force Module, an add-on to the star performer MFP-3D, which comes in multiple versions.

“I was really surprised when CSI: Miami producers called me to use our MFP-3D AFM,” said Terry Mehr, Director of Marketing. “Only days earlier, I had received an email from our VP of Asia Pacific telling me about a customer that was interested in doing forensics on our AFM and how great it would be to have our AFM on CSI. Then lo and behold, I get a call from the producers asking to use the equipment. It’s exciting to have our AFM featured in the episode.”

The MFP-3D AFM was used as a forensics instrument to procure information about a sample. Asylum Research manufactures advanced AFMs for nanoscale science and technology. For additional information, please contact Terry Mehr.
