Microfluidic and biosensing chips can take many shapes and forms, and whilst the first may be composed of silicon, glass, polymers or even paper, the latter might consist of metals (e.g. gold), semiconductors (e.g. silicon) and dielectrics (e.g. silicon oxide or silicon nitride). Moreover, different materials may be combined in a hybrid device. Regardless of the selected material, for optimum performance of the device, it is essential that not only the bulk properties are considered, but the surface properties are also taken into account.
Surfix's nanocoatings can be applied to many different microfluidic and biosensor materials and are therefore ideally suited for optimizing the surface properties and therefore the performance of the devices.
As our nanocoatings are an integral part of your device, we prefer to work in close cooperation with you to identify, develop, and produce the optimal surface modification solution for your device.
