Patented technology for widespread use in the life sciences
The PolCarr® impedance biochip stands for Polarizable Carrier. The PolCarr® impedance biochip was developed for use on transparent and flexible silicon thin films. During the manufacture of PolCarr® biochips, silicon is converted into a polarizable carrier material with surface-near, electrostatic gradient forces with a range of up to 200 nanometers by means of ion implantation. PolCarr® is an innovative platform technology for counting cells and biomolecules in 10-30 µl test liquid. The test liquid is pipetted into the ring electrode, the cells and biomolecules are immobilized within the ring electrode of the PolCarr® impedance biochip and the impedance of the PolCarr® impedance biochip is measured.
In the manufacture of PolCarr® biochips, silicon is converted by ion implantation into a polarizable carrier material with near-surface electrostatic forces in a range of up to 200 nanometers (nm). The PolCarr® biochip was developed for use on transparent and flexible thin silicon films.
