What are the typical flows and volumes involved when working with FluidFM probes?
The flow of water through a FluidFM cantilever is typically in the range of fl/s to pL/s. This is 1000x below even the best flow sensors, which have detection limits of around 1 nL/s. Accordingly the dispensed volumes start at single fL for applications such as spotting in air or injecting cells.
How long can I use the same FluidFM probe?
The lifetime of a FluidFM probe depends greatly on the experimental conditions, as well as on the applied filling, cleaning and storage protocols. Thus, a FluidFM probe’s lifetime varies between one experiment (a few hours) and one month. Please contact us for advice on the optimal probe protocols for your experiment.
Selected Nanopipette applications
FluidFM nanolithography offers the possibility of printing vectors and complex structures at the nanometer scale. Thanks to the closed nanopipette, nanolithography in liquid is feasible for various types of inks.
FluidFM enables high precision printing of spots and high density arrays with nanometer precision, both in gas and liquid environments. This technique can be utilized in biosensing and in lab-on-a-chip devices to create protein or DNA arrays.
