MICROFABRICATION

In the frame of Tech4Bio multidisciplinary group, a strong experience in micro and nanofabrication is available along with two fully equipped clean rooms in the Rome area.

Micro (nano) fabrication is a process used to construct physical objects with dimensions in the micro (nano) meter to millimeter range and takes advantage of established semiconductor fabrication processes, with the possibility to parallelize the production and downsize costs down to few cent per devices, plus specially developed techniques to reach wider applications.

Example of micro (nano) fabricated devices span from devices including moving parts, such as cantilevers, to static structures such as flow channels and wells, chemically sensitive surfaces like functionalized nanostructured surfaces, and electrical and photonic devices such as transistors or waveguides, also integrated with other device on the same chip.

In particular micro and nanofabrication can realize tools for molecular biology and biochemistry, for cell biology, medicine, and biosensors.
