Surface Functionalization

Platypus Technologies offers services for surface modification to enhance material performance across a wide range of industries, including medical devices, biotechnology, and electronics.

Our Surface Functionalization services include a wide range of techniques tailored to meet customer requirements:

  • Hydrophobic and hydrophilic surfaces: Tailor the surface wetting properties of your devices with specialized coatings that attract or repel water.
  • Biocompatible coatings: Functional surfaces for DNA or protein attachment, cell culture, histology applications, and medical devices.
  • Self-assembled monolayers (SAMs): Create ultra-thin, organized layers of molecules on metal surfaces for promoting adhesion, corrosion resistance and tuning electrical conductivity.
  • Antimicrobial coatings: Protect surfaces from microbial growth and contamination with advanced antimicrobial coatings.
  • Conducting and insulating coatings: Tailor the electrical properties of surfaces to meet specific application requirements.

Our techniques include ultrasonic cleaning, oxygen plasma treatment, coatings of functional (e.g. epoxy, amine, aldehyde, etc.) silanes or thiols, polymer coatings, biomolecule coatings (e.g. collagen, fibronectin, etc.), precision liquid dispensing, and more.

Surface functionalization plays a crucial role in enhancing the performance and functionality of materials across various industries including medical devices, microfluidics and lab-on-a-chip devices, biosensors, and wearable devices.

Our Process:

At Platypus Technologies, we follow a systematic approach to ensure the highest quality surface functionalization:

  • Consultation and material selection: Our team works closely with clients to understand their requirements and select the most suitable materials and techniques.
  • Surface preparation and cleaning: We ensure optimal adhesion and performance by thoroughly cleaning and preparing the surfaces before functionalization.
  • Functionalization and coating application: Our experts apply the selected coatings using state-of-the-art equipment and procedures.
  • Quality control and testing: We perform rigorous quality control and testing to ensure that the functionalized surfaces meet the required specifications.
  • Post-treatment and packaging: Finalized surfaces are carefully post-treated and packaged for delivery to clients.

We look forward to serving your Surface Functionalization needs!
