DESCRIPTION

New micro and nanoscale surface-structured polymers

Simple and low-cost process to generate a polymeric material with various features:

  • Shape : thin or thick free-standing films, easy-to-handle blocks with one or several structured internal channels
  • Surface properties : with or without layers of embedded particles functionalizable for specific applications
  • Mechanical : flexible and designed in planar, cylindrical or less conventional geometries
  • Transparent, biocompatible and possibly conductive
Functionalized polymeric materials with channels internally coated with gold nanoparticles

BENEFITS

  • Suitable on a variety of substrates (metallic surface, glass, or even human skin)
  • Easily insertable in a microfluidic circuit as a lab-on-a-chip support (when designed in a cylindrical geometry)
  • Different sets of samples already made
