Abstract:
Workshop Will Focus on Tip-Based Lithography for Bioengineers

NanoInk's NanoFabrication Systems Division Offers Free Nanotechnology Workshop at UCLA on Friday, June 18

Skokie, IL | Posted on June 1st, 2010

NanoInk, Inc.®, a global leader in nanotechnology, announced today that its NanoFabrication Systems Division will present a free workshop at the California NanoSystems Institute at UCLA on Friday June 18, 2010 from 10 a.m. through 3 p.m. The workshop, "Tip-Based Lithography for Bioengineers," will highlight some of the most recent applications and protocols related to the controlled and multiplexed depositions of biomaterials, with applications in tissue engineering, cell research, and biosensor functionalization using NanoInk's NLP 2000 System, a desktop nanolithography platform.

The workshop will feature technical talks and discussion from 10 a.m. to noon, lunch from noon to 1 p.m. and product demonstrations and discussion from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. The workshop will take place in the CNSI Auditorium at the California NanoSystems Institute at UCLA, located at 570 Westwood Plaza, Building 114, in Los Angeles. To register, and for more information, please visit: events.constantcontact.com/register/event?oeidk=a07e2w8f88a6e0357fb

During the workshop, participants will have access to NanoInk's NLP 2000 System, which is an easy to use and affordable desktop nanolithography platform in which patterns of nano to micron-sized features can be created with a wide variety of materials from metal nanoparticles to biomolecules. With the NLP 2000 System, researchers can rapidly design and create custom engineered surfaces over large areas, using the proven technique of Dip Pen Nanolithography® (DPN®).

More information about the workshop topics are as follows:

Biomaterials Deposition: Demonstrations will show how to directly pattern hydrogels, both pure and functionalized, in arbitrary sizes and patterns over large areas (40 mm x 40 mm). The NLP 2000 System gives researchers the ability to pattern multiple biocompatible polymers at sub-cellular features sizes with nanoscale precision.

Biosensor Functionalization: The NLP 2000 System can be used to write directly to existing structures, opening up the possibility to functionalize microscale sensor devices with multiple materials.

Parallel and Multiplexed Depositions: Using NanoInk's multiple tip arrays; demonstrations will show how to pattern complex multi-component protein arrays with sub-cellular feature sizes for use in cell adhesion, cell migration, and cell differentiation studies.

Rapid Prototyping: The generation of new patterns requires a simple change in the pattern entered into the software. This direct write technique can be used to rapidly prototype arbitrary patterns without having to create a new master stamp or mask for each pattern.
