Hydroix technology enables the patterning of 2D and 3D nanocoatings with micrometer resolution on a specific local area in a fast and simple single-step process.
In the fields of biosensing, molecular electronics and lab-on-a-chip, positional control of surface properties is of prime importance. On flat surfaces, micro- and nanopatterns of functional nanocoatings can be produced via well-known photolithographic and soft lithographic approaches.
However, when more complex geometries are concerned, e.g. in microstructured or microfluidic devices, fabrication of micro- and nanosized chemical features is considerably more difficult. Via our proprietary surface modification technology even these complex devices can locally be functionalized with our molecular coatings. For these applications local control of the surface properties will generate new opportunities in the development of reliable micro- and nanoscale devices.
