French companies, Innopsys and Nanolane agree to a commercial partnership offering researchers a combined and complete solution for precise nano-pattern printing and characterization with the InnoStamp 40 microcontact printing and Sarfus Mapping equipments. Methods which produce and control nanopatterns on surfaces with high resolution, good productivity and low cost are more frequently requested. With this in mind, microcontact printing has certain advantages when compared with such conventional techniques as nanoimprint lithography (NIL), hot embossing, and injection molding. It accomplishes this by offering accessibility, ease of use and reproducibility. Non-contact, large scan and rapid imprint characterization are also key parameters concerning the control of the quality print. Among existing technologies, optical technique appears to be the only method capable of meeting such requirements. However, due to its low sensitivity, characterization of nanometric samples such as nano-patterns is not possible. Brochure on the dual InnoStamp 40 and Sarfus Mapping equipments: here The partnership between Innopsys and Nanolane aims to provide imprinted surface specialists an optimized and complete solution for nano-pattern printing and characterization through the InnoStamp 40 and Sarfus Mapping equipments. The companies will present both technologies during the next SelectBio Sciences event: ‘Lab-on-a-chip & Microarray world congress (San Diego, USA, 18-19 September, 2014). We warmly invite you to come and to find out more about these combined solutions. Innostamp 40 by Innopsys: Read More...
Innopsys recently released the InnoStamp 40, a fully automated microcontact printing and molding solution. This innovation offers a new take on nanopatterning by optimizing reproducibility and precision for nano-object transfer and structuring. Using magnetic force to print, the InnoStamp 40 can be distinguished by its performance, low cost and user-friendliness. Thanks to this new technology the InnoStamp 40 allows users to: Automate their deposition process ; Customize their protocols by adjusting parameters ; Use specific and high precision techniques thanks to optional modules ; Vary their patterns with different size and shape ; Deposit nano-objects with high precision thanks to an alignment step ; Multiplex their printing thanks to the Macrostamp® ; Obtain homogeneous and repeatable results. Sarfus Mapping stations by Nanolane
The Sarfus Mapping stations commercialized by Nanolane are based on an advanced optical technique (SEEC Microscopy) allowing the detailed and fine characterization of organic, inorganic or biological samples down to the nanoscale. This label-free technique uses contrast-enhanced slides allowing a direct and real-time visualisation of samples down to 0.1nm-thickness and is thus, particularly adapted to the studies of nanometric structures such as nano-patterns. The SEEC Microscopy offers: A fast, easy and label-free way to analyze your surfaces; The live visualization of nano-patterns imprinted on surfaces; The complete sample topographic studies (profile, step height, roughness…) with high accuracy (<0.2nm); A sensitive method to track in real-time mass variation during molecular adsorption, desorption, hybridization, interaction…; A powerful tool to detect morphological changes as a function of the environment (T°, pH, [C] …); Contacts:
