Project TitlePhotolithographic Patterning of Biologically Active Materials
Track Code4959
Short Description

Cornell researchers have developed a novel photolithographic patterning method that allows multiple organic/biological materials to be patterned via orthogonal processing without damaging their performance.

Abstract

Cornell researchers have developed a novel photolithographic patterning method that allows multiple organic/biological materials to be patterned via orthogonal processing without damaging their performance. This invention specifically enables a lithographic patterning process for biologically active materials with the help of highly fluorinated polymeric materials and fluorous solvents. The use of bio-compatible solvents and special imaging materials allows lithographic methods to be directly applied to the patterning of biomolecules. Additionally, the novel process enables patterning of multiple proteins on a single surface.

                                   

Potential Applications

  • Micro- and nano-scale biodevices
  • Bio-materials processing and research

                                      

Advantages

  • Orthogonal processing without damaging fragile biomolecules
  • Straightforward patterning of multiple proteins on a single substrate
  • Bio-compatible solvents
