Patented technology for widespread use in the life sciences
The PolCarr® impedance biochip stands for polarizable carrier. It is an innovative platform technology for small biomolecules, for example vitamins and hormones, amino acids and nucleotides as well as macromolecules such as proteins or DNA. These cells are brought into contact with the innovative carrier material. The resulting immobilization with micrometer to nanometer accuracy can be used in many areas of the life sciences.
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.
