NanoInk's NanoFabrication Systems Division announced today the launch of its NLP 2000, a desktop instrument designed to provide cost-effective, rapid and reproducible nanoarrays. The NLP 2000 is a desktop nanofabrication system that is both simple to use and readily affordable. Patterns of nano- to micro-sized features may be created using a variety of materials from metal nanoparticles to biomolecules. Researchers are able to rapidly design and create custom engineered and functionalized surfaces using the proven technique of Dip Pen Nanolithography® (DPN®) to transfer nanoliter or smaller amounts over a large, environmentally controlled area.
Operation of the NLP 2000 offers significant advances over current micro-arraying systems. To start, the system offers arrays of pens to write simultaneously over areas as large as 40mm x 40mm. The pens will deliver a spot size over a broad dynamic range of 50nm up to 10s of microns. Using NanoInk's Inkwell devices, multiple materials may be deposited in one step.
The NLP 2000 will write onto a diverse range of substrates including Petri dishes and coverslips. The use of a standard optical microscope slide makes the creation of the arrays easily portable to various standard detection systems. The large format and work area also permit the use of a variety of tissue culture plastic dishes.
Designed to serve the increasing need for large area deposition of nanoarrays, this new DPN-based instrument is the first capable of fabrication of sub micron features over large areas.
The NLP 2000 will make its debut at the Pittsburgh Conference and Exposition (Pittcon®) in Chicago, March 8-13, 2009, in booth #2315.
