Plasma cleaner

soft lithography Plasma-datasheet BLACK

The first plasma cleaner designed specifically for PDMS bonding, this automated plasma enables to easily fabricate your PDMS microfluidic device. Thanks to its vacuum feedback loop, this plasma cleaner automatically regulates the vacuum inside the chamber without need of hand tuning.

Major strengths:

  • Automatic pressure regulation for easy PDMS bonding.
  • Low pressure drift gauge for reproducible process over time.
  • Secured vacuum pump to avoid contamination of the plasma chamber.
  • Three RF power available.
  • Numeric vacuum gauge.
  • Fine vacuum tuning compatible with 3 to 6 inches wafer.

Oven

oven photo lithography PDMS chip

Natural convention drying oven. Frontal panel with bimetallic fluid expansion probe thermo regulator. This oven for 4 inches wafer will allow you to cure your PDMS efficiently. Indeed its size is adapted for a Petri dish size to heat two molds at one time. Its minimum footprint enables fast pre-heating and small electric consumption. It is a really movable device and it can be installed everywhere.

Major strengths:

  • Easy to use.
  • Internal chamber in aluminium for a better heat diffusion.
  • Adjustable flow air going inside the chamber for venting.
  • Small footprint adapted to 15mm Petri dish.
  • Two internal shelves.
  • Light warning during heating.
  • Timer goes from 1 to 120 minutes.

Spin coater

SPIN caoter BLACK

This spin coater is compact and packed with advanced features. It works with wafers up to diam. 150mm and 5″ x 5″ (127mm x 127mm) substrates. This spin coater is perfectly fine-tuned to do controllable and reap table PDMS layer. Its compact size with the little panel control attached makes the device really movable. Moreover the hole on the lid enables to do dynamic PDMS coating.

Major strengths:

  • Designed specifically for ease-of-use.
  • Simple to program from the operator panel or your PC.
  • Ability to set complex sequences with several accelerations and speeds.
  • Easy to clean.
  • Non clogging system for extended lifetime.
  • Low vibration.
  • Speed up to 12000rpm.
  • Provided with wafer centering tool.

An adaptive offer!

Since each laboratory is different, since each research is unique, we do adapt the offer to be as close as possible of the real need. We discuss together what will be the best efficient facility and thus add or remove equipment, accessories, chemicals.

Do not hesitate to ask one of our technico-commercials to make an assessment of your facility and to advice you on your project.

Options

We have created basic offers with everything needed to have a complete working set, but some options can be added according to each situation. We have selected some options commonly used during softlithography processes but do not hesitate to ask our engineer if you have special expectations.
