3. With FluidFM ® Cytosurge AG is reinventing the micropipette with the goal to make single cell applications more powerful, more automated, and more cost effective. The company’s vision is to provide a new generation of tools to stimulate novel applications at the fore- front of nanotechnology, life sciences and single cell biology in particular. FluidFM ® technology utilizes microfabricated micro- and nanopipettes with direct force control capabilities. The technology can be integrated with standard in- verted optical microscopes. The unique features of FluidFM ® allows it to carry out many applications with respect to single cell isolation and manipulation. Thanks to the highly precise force control, FluidFM ® micro- and nanopipettes can be controlled with utmost precision and without damaging the manipulated cells. The unmatched ability of FluidFM ® to dispense and sample liquid at the femtoliter scale (10 – 15 l) are prone to redefine the capabilities of state of the art micro- pipetting instrumentation. FluidFM ® technology has proven to be highly versatile with an impressive portfolio of validated applications in life sciences and beyond. The possibility to carry out all operations even when fully immersed in liquid render the technology ideal for biological applications at the single cell level. CYTOSURGE AG IS BASED IN ZURICH SWITZERLAND. The company is active in the field of single cell isolation and manipulation and employs specialists from various fields in business development, engineering, biology and computer science. – POWERFUL TOOLS FOR THOSE READY TO GO FURTHER. Cytosurge AG was founded in 2009 as a spinoff of ETH Zurich. The company is active in the field of single cell isolation and manipulation, develops the patented FluidFM ® technology and has recently started its commercial operations in several markets within Europe, Asia and the United States. The company is based in Zurich Switzerland and employs specialists from various fields in business development, engineering, biology and computer science. In 2012 the company was awarded with the ZKB Pionierpreis Technopark. The price is one of the most important national startup awards in Switzerland. Subject to change without notice.

4. REINVENTING THE MICROPIPETTE. F luid FM ® TECHNOLOGY PRECISE f L LIQUID VOLUMES ACCURATE pm PRECISION SENSITIVE p N FORCE CONTROL VERSATILE ∞ APPLICATIONS THE UNIQUE F luid FM ® TECHNOLOGY. Symbiosis of nanofluidics and force microscopy. TUBING BUFFER SOLUTION GLASS SLIDE OPTICAL MICROSCOPE MICROCHANNELED FluidF M ® PROBE RESERVOIR PRE-ASSEMBLED FluidF M ® PROBE HOLDER OPTICAL FORCE FEEDBACK TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION. Thanks to the nanofluidic channel inside FluidFM ® probes, soluble molecules can be dispensed through a sub-micrometer aperture at the tip. At the same time, the sensitive force feedback system allows surfaces in liquid environments to be modified in a controlled fashion. It also provides a reliable distinc - tion between gentle contact with cell membranes and perforation. F luid FM ® IN A NUTSHELL. FluidFM ® technology unites the best features of micro- fluidics and force microscopy by introducing closed microscopic channels into force sensitive probes. This unique combination enables the handling of liquid volumes at the femtoliter scale, as well as force con- trolled manipulations of microscopic objects. FluidFM ® technology elevates the application scope of traditional glass micropipettes to new levels. The truly unique combination of force microscopy and microfluidics elevates your applications to a higher level, from single cell biology to surface analysis and beyond. FluidFM ® technology gives you maximum experi- mental flexibility for your most demanding nano- manipulation tasks. Benefit from simplified workflows and higher producti- vity. FluidFM ® probes have an aperture 500 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair. This allows flow rates as small as femtliters per second; a million times smaller than what the best flow sensor can detect. The patented technology that makes this possible is FluidFM ® .
