Presentation Summary

The FluidFM technology enables the control of liquids in the femtoliter scale. With this unique liquid control, a new 3D printing manufacturing process is possible. The "FluidFM µ3Dprinter" can dispense almost any liquid threw the micro channeled micropipette and in the case of 3D metal printing an aqueous solution containing metal ions that rapidly grow into solid metal voxels. This technique allows printing of various metals, e.g., copper, silver, gold, in one single process step.

Company Profile (Cytosurge)

Cytosurge logo
Cytosurge is a "young" and high-tech ETH Zurich spin-off founded in the year 2009. The first ground-breaking FluidFM® publication led to the formation of the Cytosurge Company in Zurich. In the ensuing years, a group of experts developed and commercialized the FluidFM® technology with focus on life sciences, biology and physics- all related to single cell research. On-going research led to a totally new field of technology: direct printing of sub- and micrometer 3D metal objects.
FluidFM®, the technology to control liquids in the femtoliter scale and to manipulate objects, invisible for the human eye.
FluidFM µ3Dprinter, the brand new development that enables the printing of complex metal objects on a micrometer and even submicron meter scale at ambient temperature.
