Via surface modification technology the surface properties of micro- and nanoscale devices can easily be controlled, tuned and manipulated in a versatile and reproducible manner. With relative ease the wettability, biocompatibility, bioselectivity, and optical and electronic characteristics of various inorganic and polymeric surfaces can be adjusted and controlled. Furthermore, a wide variety of terminal functional groups can be implemented allowing the immobilization of complex (bio)organic molecules such as antibodies, DNA, proteins, cells, catalytically and redox active moieties. In addition, for biosensor applications biofouling moieties can be incorporated to prevent nonspecific binding interactions, i.e. to enhance bioselectivity.
The implementation of surface chemistry in the devices of LioniX is done together with Surfix.
Surfix develops and provides chemical surface modification, based on innovative nanocoatings, for the micro- and nanotechnology market.
