Primo

Tools for creating more reliable and reproducible cell models

PRIMO was developed to enable you to engineer custom microenvironments and fine-tune their mechanical and biochemical properties, at the micrometer scale with high flexibility and reproducibility

  • Key Features

    • Protein micropatterning glass coverslips, glass slides, 96 well plates, EM grids, polystyrene, PDMS, polyacrylamide gel (transfer), hydrogels.
    • Hydrogel structuration UV-curable hydrogels, PEG Acrylate, Polyacrylamide, Agar, Matrigel.
    • Microfabrication: UV-curable materials, UV-photoresists.

Take control of the cell microenvironment

PRIMO was developed to enable you to engineer custom microenvironments and fine-tune their mechanical and biochemical properties, at the micrometer scale with high flexibility and reproducibility.

Simply select the pattern you want to use from your computer files (no size or shape limitations). Primo then projects it onto the cell culture substrate to create microstructures (microfabrication, hydrogel structuration) and/or to generate micropatterns with the protein of your choice micropatterning).

Compatible with most inverted microscopes, Primo micropatterning can be combined with you standard imaging techniques to better study the behavior and development of living cells in a broad range of applications, such as: cytoskeleton dynamics, cell adhesion force measurement, cell confinement, cell migration, tissue engineering, spheroids.

Additional Applications can be found below, including patterning TEM grid\ and production of microfluidics.
