Molecular Desktop Printer

is the only instrument for fast and flexible functionalization of surfaces and devices with 3 different techniques.

Compatible with diverse selection of printing tools, it can deposit a great variety of molecular inks on various surface topographies and chemistries.

It is also modular, and can be edited to match your projects precisely.

Printer modules

1. Optical module
Allows you to control your printing process in-situ with an in-built zoom microscope.

2. Printing module
accommodates a variety of commercially available tools ranging from AFM-based probes to soft polymeric stamps. This gives you freedom and flexibility to use 3 different printing techniques best suited for your project. To increase the control over the printing process down to the nanoscale this module can be also upgraded with components allowing higher resolution and automated tilting.

3. Substrate platform
Can easily accomodate a high number of substrates thanks to its large size. This will help you printing on large size samples as well as improve mass fabrication of smaller substrates. This platform can be upgraded by a rotation or temperature control module.

Printer modules

1. Optical module
allows you to control your printing process in-situ with an built-in zoom microscope. This module can be expanded by adding fluorescence and polarization imaging.

2. Printing module

Optional modules
  • Humidity module

  • Temperature module

  • Rotation module

  • High-resolution module

  • Fluorescence/polarization imaging module

UV Platform

UV platform will assist your surface functionalization. If you are printing polymers, resins or hydrogels you may find this module very useful. Importantly, it is independent of our Molecular Printer system and can be used as a separate device.

Technical specifications are:

  • Lamp Wavelength: 365 nm

  • FWHM: +- 10nm

  • Intensity: 800 mW/cm^2

  • Exposure Area: 40 x 40 mm

It can be applied for:

  • substrate or probes  activation

  • polymerization

  • photochemistry

  • crosslinking

  • photolithography

  • sterilization of small tools

Main features of the UV-system are:

  • High power UV-LED lamp with a very long lifetime that allows for a maintenance free operation

  • Short process times of the UV exposure process

  • Ozone-free process

 

UV/Ozone ProCleaner - provided to you via our partnership with BioForce Nanosciences

It can be applied for:

  • cleaning molecular contamination from SPTs, AFM tips and surfaces

  • curing UV-adhesives

  • UV photo-patterning of SAM surfaces

  • oxidizing PDMS

  • etching, patterning, sharpening

  • cleaning MEMS devices

  • sterilization of small tools, surfaces, and samples

Flexible choice of consumables

Our Molecular Printer can accommodate a variety of tools for printing, ranging from AFM-based probes to soft polymeric stamps.

This gives you freedom and flexibility to chose the tool best suited to print the pattern you need for your experiments.
