Surfix’s nanocoatings enhance the performance of micro- and nanodevices in various areas of application. They allow the coating of a wide range of materials to control essential surface properties such as wettability, protein adsorption, and biorecognition. The nanocoating properties are highly tuneable, which enables us to customize our nanocoating to your device and your application. A selection of the possibilities is given below, but do not hesitate to enquire for other options. 

Substrate materials

  • polymers (PE/PP,
    COC/COP, SU-8, PC,
    PMMA, PEEK, PET, ...)
  • ceramics (glass, silicon,
    silicon oxide, silicon nitride, 
    silicon carbide, ...)
  • paper, (nitro)cellulose
  • selected metals

Surface properties

  • hydrophobic
  • hydrophilic
  • anti-biofouling
  • biofunctionalizable

Added value

  • wettability control
  • reduced non-specific
    adsorption (biofouling)
  • optimized specific
    biomolecular interactions
  • increased sensitivity,
    stability, and lifetime

Application examples

  • point-of-care diagnostics
  • drug discovery
  • lab-on-a-chip
  • organ-on-a-chip
  • microfluidics
  • biosensors
