High Quality (HQ)™ AFM Probes
Get better results and ease of use with budget-priced AFM probes. Comparable with more expensive probes such as Tap150 and NCST, Asylum Research HQ™ probes are part of Asylum's proprietary SurfRider™ budget-priced probe line: they're a good choice for almost all routine AFM measurements and ideal for AFM training and educational use.

  • Value-priced to make your research budget go farther
  • Vertical edges make probes easier to handle with tweezers
  • Better consistency compared to other similarly priced probes
  • Compatible with blueDrive™, GetReal™, and GetStarted™ for simpler operation
  • The industry’s best customer support will help you select the optimal probe type

Asylum Research delivers higher quality, more consistent probes at competitive prices by using modern, highly-controlled silicon fabrication tools and facilities:
  • Stepper lithography instead of traditional mask aligner
    • Almost 10X more precise compared with regular photo lithography
  • Individual probe chips are separated with vertical edges
    • Eliminate chipping and resulted coupling noise issue
  • Deep reactive ion etching instead of conventional KOH etching
    • Yields well defined cantilever geometry for better mechanical property
