ASM Buys and Sells Used (Second-hand) NanoScopes

This page contains links to several pages describing the used (second-hand) NanoScope(R) equipment we have for sale and seek to buy.

ASM buys, refurbishes, and sells and installs used AFM and STM equipment.  The equipment shown on these pages is representative of what we have bought and sold in the past. Similar systems are generally available, but current stock may not match the exact configuration shown here.

Ask us for details of currently available systems.

And if you want to repair rather than sell your used equipment, we also repair NanoScopes.

Equipment we want to buy

Valuable reference information (including previously-sold equipment)

Why do we display information about sold systems?  So that you can see what we have sold in the past and expect to buy and sell in the future.  We are happy to put your name on a waiting list for equipment.

Why buy from ASM?

Since 1990, we have been providing skilled analytical services, specializing in Atomic Force Microscopy and related techniques.  We have made significant scientific contributions in AFM. Since 1993, we have been buying, refurbishing and selling  second-hand NanoScope AFM’s and related equipment for customers around the world.  All the equipment we sell is tested and repaired as needed to meet our professional standards.  We provide skilled technical support to our customers, covering both instrument operation and application advice.

What customers say about our used equipment:

"I thought the AFM purchased by Molecular Reflections was an excellent instrument. No surprises. I also think that you and your colleagues wanted us to succeed, not only in the getting the instrument functioning but beyond,  in terms of guidance for techniques and such. I would highly recommend  Advanced Surface Microscopy as a source for renewed equipment." - Dr. Boyce Collins, USA.

"I always thought it was a great idea to have a company that sells used SPM equipment. Advanced Surface Microscopy provides an excellent service to the SPM community with its products." Prof. Ricardo Garcia, CSIC-Madrid Microelectronics Institute, Spain.
