At the upcoming COMPAMED Trade Fair Surfix will showcase its advanced patterned nanocoatings for improving the performance of biosensors, microfluidics and lab-on-a-chip devices.


Surface modification is an essential part of micro- and nanotechnology, and there are several methods for applying uniform molecular coatings to different materials. However, micro- and nanodevices often require a combination of multiple functional coatings within one device.


“For example, the sensitivity of biosensors can be increased a lot by selectively attaching probe molecules to the sensing area and applying an antifouling coating to the rest of the sensor”, says Luc Scheres, co-founder and CEO of Surfix. “With our coating technology we apply the right functionality to the right location, enhancing the performance of many materials and devices.”


At COMPAMED , Surfix will demonstrate its proprietary surface modification technology and show examples of patterned nanocoatings prepared by local and selective surface modification.
