MicroContact-Printer

The µContact-Printer 4.1 (µCP 4.1) features PDMS stamps with customized stamp patterns. It offers surface patterning at the submicrometer range as well as Nano-Imprint Lithography on one instrument. It fits into standard laboratory safety cabinets and is highly customizable.

Microcontact printing (µCP) does work on the nanoscale: a soft polymer like PDMS (silicone) is cast on a micro- or nanostructured master; the resulting stamp is soaked in sample and pressed onto a surface, thus transferring molecules from the protruding areas. Chemicals, biomolecules, nanoparticles, beads and cells can be printed, which is why µCP is getting popular in the life sciences, e.g. to study the influence of structured matrix proteins or growth factors on growth, differentiation and movement of cells.

Nanoimprint lithography (NIL) has become a hot topic in microelectronics and cell biology. Here the entire stamp structure is replicated in a soft polymer at elevated temperature and fixed by cooling or UV cross-linking. µCP and NIL are easily performed on the fully automatic GeSiM µContactPrinter 4.1, taking the risk out of both methods. Smaller structures can be tiled together via step & repeat, especially when using “double-side patterning” with a silicon mask in the stamp. For higher throughput, the larger µCP 4.2 exists.


 

BioSyntheSizer –
Multi-Synthesis
Robotic Platform

Configurable with a high-pressure, high temperature single vial reaction chamber, a crimping tool as well as powder dispenser and septum piercing luer-needle pipetting tools. This system is already being applied as a multisynthesis radiopharmaceutical robot to create [18F]FDG, [18F]FLT, [18F]FMISO, [18F]NaF, [18F]FES, [18F]FET, [18F]SFB-peptides and [68Ga]peptides.
