NanoInk, Inc. builds tools that enable companies in
the life sciences, microelectronics and photonics industries to
create revolutionary new products and services. We help companies
and researchers get small. We provide a gateway to the nanoscopic
world, where products are smaller, faster, cheaper and smarter.
Our automated suite of tools enables customers and partners to build
structures and devices molecule-by-molecule, or at the nanometer
scale. A nanometer is a billionth of a meter, and we enable companies
and researchers to build structures smaller than 10 nanometers.
Trying to fathom a scale this small is as mind-boggling as trying
to comprehend a scale as large as the universe. To put this into
perspective, imagine that NanoInk is a regular factory that makes
cars. For those cars to be 10 nanometers long, the earth would need
to be shrunk down to a marble about the size of a silver dollar.
Our systems provide the only way to quickly and routinely build
at this scale using virtually any material, from metals to DNA.
We believe that getting small is the only way for
industries to continue the rapid pace of technological advancement
of the past 20 years. NanoInk will empower companies with nanotechnology,
enabling them to create revolutionary new products that will have
profound effects on our economy and our every-day lives. We provide
the tools, processes and technological expertise to help customers
and partners make breakthrough advances in diverse areas, from speeding
drug discovery to building new types of electronics that are smaller
and more powerful than those available today.
How is this done? Our systems build structures by
literally drawing them onto a surface through a patent-pending process
called Dip-Pen Nanolithography™("DPN™").
