AXT to distribute NT-MDT atomic force microscopes

Friday, 20 February, 2015

Scientific equipment supplier AXT has announced a partnership with atomic force microscope (AFM) manufacturer NT-MDT. The agreement will see AXT represent NT-MDT in Australia and New Zealand, looking after both sales and service.

NT-MDT has been producing instrumentation for nanotechnology research for over 20 years. According to AXT Microscopy Product Manager Dr Kamran Khajehpour, this is “a rapidly growing field that bridges materials science and life science, so [NT-MDT’s] products are an ideal fit for us as we work in both these fields”.

NT-MDT’s product line is headlined by the recently released Titanium, whose cantilever cartridge allows the user to load 38 tips at once. With good drift and long-term stability, the product also features both hybrid and multifrequency measurement modes. NT-MDT Regional Sales Manager Dmitry Selivanov said the company hopes to “install the first Titanium in Australia in the near future”.

The company also offers the NTEGRA - a modular system that can be configured in many different layouts to tailor it to several applications - and the NanoEducator - a high-precision, compact product designed for training and teaching. AXT Managing Director Richard Trett said NT-MDT’s instruments have “redefined usability in AFM” and are “a perfect addition to our nanotechnology arsenal”.
