The Price of Atomic Force Microscopes

There’s a wide range in the purchase price of an Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) for general laboratory use, usually somewhere between $20,000 and $300,000.

The amount the AFM costs depends on the features and capabilities of the instruments. Typically, AFMs costing less than $30,000 are used for educating students on the operation and application of AFM. The mid-price AFM systems are generally purchased by researchers who want AFM imaging capabilities but do not necessarily want to become AFM “experts”. Those AFMs priced over $100,000 are generally purchased by AFM experts who require very advanced capabilities.

Some of the key differences in the AFMs at different price brackets are explained below:


$20K - 30K AFMs - Cell phone type Optics
- Noise floor > 250 picometers
- Limited modes available
- Basic Atomic Force Microscope
$30 K - 100 K AFMs - Table top (TT-2) Atomic Force Microscope
- High Resolution Atomic Force Microscope
- Atomic Force Microscope for Atomically Flat Samples
- Life Sciences Atomic Force Microscope
- Nano-Profiling Atomic Force Microscope
- Standalone Atomic Force Microscope
$100 K - 300 K AFMs - Motorized sample position stage
- Automated Focus
- Noise floor <50 picometers
- Advanced options for specialized research
- Automated software features
- Life Sciences Atomic Force Microscope
