What Customers Say

“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 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 equiment.  Advanced Surface Microscopy provides an excellent service to the SPM community with its products.” Prof. Ricardo Garcia, CSIC-Madrid Microelectronics Institute, Spain.
