RMC instruments are involved in a broad range of fields in nanoscale research, including those in material science and cell biology, with special emphasis in:Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM/ATM).

Boeckeler Instruments Inc., RMC’s parent company, has also been involved in nanotechnology field for some time. Established in 1942 as “Boeckeler Instruments Company” by Henry Boeckeler, the company manufactured mechanical micrometer heads accurate to +/- 10 millionths of an inch and first used in repairing the exterior aluminum skins of WWII military aircraft. This is still the finest micrometer head made in the world to this day.
