Tittle:
A fully automated contact printer for nanopatterning based on soft lithography
Summary:
A biomedical instrumentation focussed French SME is developing and commercializing equipment for nanopatterns fabrication by microcontact printing (or stamping). The heart of this innovation is based on a magnetic stamp. The SME is looking for commercial agreement with technical assistance, technical cooperation agreement, and licensing preferably in Japan.
Description:
A French SME, very active in R-Y-D with more than 30% of its annual turnover invested for innovative projects, is focussed on biomedical applications. The company is developing and commercializing equipment for nanopatterns fabrication by microcontact printing (or stamping).

Others existing technologies deal with micro or nanopatterning. For example, ink jet printing is a similar technology. Its drawbacks compared to the microcontact printing are:
-the low resolution (ink jet: 20µm, microcontact printing: 100nm)
-the protocol optimization
As another example, the electron beam lithography has a much higher resolution than the microcontact printing (10nm VS 100nm). However, the cost of these equipment is more expensive and the scaling-up and industrialization is very complex.
With this technology and this equipment, there is a compromise between nanometric resolution of patterns, industrialization and the cost of equipment.

This technology has a larger range of applications (biosensor, flexible electronics, semiconductor, surface chemistry, ...).

The product is already on the market.

The heart of this innovation is based on a magnetic stamp.
It has an application lab with a French academic lab in order to study proof-of-concept. It has access to facilities as clean room, cell culture, ...

The SME is looking for commercial or technical partnership to develop this activity to Japan. For example, a partnership with a company working on Nano characterization could be studied in order to propose a nano-platform, or OEM contract could be discussed.
Advantages and Innovations:
Compared to the existing solutions, the main advantages of this technology are:
- A full automation of the process. (usually, it is done by hand)
- Various inks can be printed
- A nanometric resolution
- High process reproducibility
- Easy Scaling up/easy valorization of R-Y-D activity
- Unlimited surface size for printing
- Compatible with various type of substrates
- No loss of know-how
- A low-cost technology
Stage of Development:
Already on the market
IPs:
Secret Know-how,Patent(s) applied for but not yet granted,Patents granted,Trade Marks
CommeR Statunts Regarding IPR Status:
Patents have been granted in Japan.
