In cell biology, micro patterning is becoming a popular tool to study cellular behavior at the single-cell level. FluidFM can be used as a nanoprinting tool to enable the deposition of biomolecules and particles at defined locations. More information about nanoprinting with FluidFM can be found in our website.
Some publications of FluidFM applications in spotting and nanolithography are the following:
