Abstract:
NanoInk's NanoFabrication Systems Division is pleased to announce that the University of Glasgow's Biomedical Engineering Research Division (part of the school of engineering) has recently purchased and installed a DPN 5000 System - a dedicated, versatile instrument capable of patterning a variety of materials with nanoscale accuracy and precision. The NanoInk system will reside in the Advanced Medical Diagnostics research group, which plans to harness the power of the DPN 5000 System to create novel sensors for use in cutting edge diagnostics.

University of Glasgow Enhances Biomedical Engineering with NanoInk's DPN 5000 System: Will be used to develop and fabricate unique sensors for use in advanced diagnostic applications

Chicago, IL | Posted on October 17th, 2012

The Advanced Medical Diagnostics research group, led by Professor Jonathan Cooper, was established over 20 years ago. It has a strong track record in many aspects of bioengineering, especially those associated with advanced biomedical diagnostics, biosensors, cell engineering, lab-on-a-chip and bio-nanotechnology.

The DPN 5000 System is a full-featured tip-based lithography platform capable of multi-component deposition of a wide range of materials in sub-micron sized features. Its intuitive user interface enables the deposition of complex nanopatterns by precisely controlling tip movements during the writing process. DPN 5000 System users can easily design, create, and analyze nano and microstructures on a variety of substrates.

"With the acquisition of NanoInk's DPN 5000 system, we saw the opportunity to expand our already wide-ranging research capabilities with a state-of-the-art nanofabrication instrument," said Jonathan Cooper, Professor of Bioelectronics and Bioengineering, Dean of Graduate Studies. "The NanoInk platform will allow us to explore novel sensors and systems based around the combination of our micro and nano-engineered devices with complex molecular nanopatterns."

"We are delighted that the Biomedical Engineering Research Division at the University of Glasgow selected our DPN 5000 System," said Robert Marchmont, General Manager of NanoInk's NanoFabrication Systems Division, Europe, the Middle East and Africa. "With the DPN 5000 system, Professor Cooper and his team will be able to pioneer new micro and nano-engineered devices in support of their mission, which is the development of advanced diagnostics.
