NanoPhoenix develops micro and nanostructured devices and surfaces for cell biology studies, biosensors, and Labs-on-chips in the diagnostic and therapeutic fields, supporting the customer all the way from design to large-scale production:
Micro and nanostructured surfaces reproducing the extracellular matrix physiological environment and surface topography, provided with an enhanced active surface that improves the efficiency of cell cohesion, proliferation, and differentiation.
Applications: cell morphology analysis, biomechanical analysis, co-culture development, standardization of cell cultures, organs-on-chips, etc.
Size(from 70 nm to 500 μm)
Materials(e.g. PDMS, polystyrene, titanium, gold)
Geometry(e.g. pillars, lines, holes)
Highly productive fluidic devices in different hydrophilic and non-absorbent materials with plug&play configuration.
Applications: analysis of biological fluids in the therapeutic and diagnostic fields such as liquid biopsy.
Size(≥ 1 μm)
Materials(e.g. PDMS, thermoplastic polymers, fused silica, epoxy resins)
Geometry(e.g. active and passive microfluidics: trigger valve, micromixer, reaction chamber)
Micro and nano electrodes
Developed with high resolution and homogeneity for a fast, sensitive, and accurate measurement.
Applications: biological samples analysis in the human, animal, and agri-food fields, therapeutic monitoring, etc.
Size(from 50 nm to 500 μm)
Materials(e.g. gold, platinum, silver, glassy carbon, conductive materials)
Geometry(e.g. square and hexagonal symmetry arrays, interdigitates, SAW)
Thanks to a multidisciplinary team, we boast a broad and solid know-how in micro and nanofabrication processes, in the design and implementation of microfluidic systems, and in the development of biosensor platforms for the public and private sector, both at national and international scope.
Expertise in the use of Pulsed-NIL, an evolution of Nanoimprint Lithography. Pulsed-NIL is a fast, simple, versatile, and accurate manufacturing technology.
Expertise in the development of sensor platforms with EIS (Electrochemical Impedence Spectroscopy) and electrochemical transduction scheme coupled with high-performance micro and nanoelectrode arrays (MEA and NEA) to detect therapeutic molecules.
Expertise in the development of manageable microfluidic circuits (witching, mixing, dispensing), with high-precision control of fluids, and labs-on-chips, devices that integrate multiple laboratory functions in a single chip for diagnostic and agri-food applications.
We are strengthening our expertise in the development of biocompatible micro and nanostructured surfaces aimed at studying biological processes such as cell adhesion, migration, proliferation, differentiation, and interactions.
