GeSiM is specialized in liquid handling automation, microfluidics and micro contact printing. As a leading supplier of submicroliter dispensers GeSiM developed a unique design for piezoelectric pipetting tips, based on silicon-glass chips. The benchtop pipetting system Nano-Plotter runs up to 16 of these accurate dispensers and is mainly used as non-contact arrayer for microarrays, biochips and biosensors. The Nano-Plotter line follows a strictly modular concept and “grows” with the applications of their owners. Postsales upgrade and a variety of accessories help to bridge the gap from research to production. The Nano-Plotter is successfully used for the production of (FDA) certified diagnostic products.
Liquid handling by contact printing is available with the GeSiM micro-contact printers. These instruments transfer sample into tiny 2-dimensional patterns or generate 3-dimensional structures by Nano-Imprint-Lithography (NIL). A patented stamping technology features PDMS stamps for accurate image transfer.
Recent developments are focused on instrumentation for 3D printing of biocompatible materials, e.g bioscaffolds. Common 3D printers are usually not capable of processing biocompatible materials.
