The Agilent 5100 AFM/SPM microscope is a high-resolution system that provides excellent imaging capabilities in an easy-to-upgrade package. The 5100 offers researchers many of the same features as Agilent’s sophisticated 5500 AFM/SPM microscope at an entry-level price. It is ideal for polymer, general surface characterization and materials applications
The Agilent 5100 AFM/SPM microscope delivers atomic-scale resolution as well as direct video access to the scan area. The 5100 comes with Agilent´s multipurpose scanner, offering a highly versatile system for a diverse set of applications.

"I used an Agilent 5200 system for three years on a wide variety of applications. This system came without a video camera; I would not recommend this as it makes accurate choice of scanning location impossible. However, I think the normal configurations do have one, and it's best to get it. I used AC-AFM mostly, including in liquid. In liquid it worked quite well. I also got some excellent images in air. The support service were reasonable, but were not able to resolve one issue I had, which was why I moved onto another system. It’s a good value for money system suitable for general AFM duties."
