Solutions for Life Sciences

Research, prototyping, mass production


Improve your in vitro studies using biomimetic surfaces with micro and nanostructures to recreate the physiological environment of cells. 

Surface topography is known to play a fundamental role in many cellular processes (from adhesion to migration and cell-cell interaction), so it is a crucial aspect to consider while developing cell cultures.

Substrates with superficial micro and nanopatterns are suitable for different applications: cell morphology studies, mechanobiology analysis, co-culture development, and standardization of cell cultures.

ThunderNIL has an innovative technology that can create high-resolution structures with different geometries (pillar, lines, holes) and dimensions and can work on various materials (PDMS, polystyrene, titanium), including customers’ ones. In this way, we can create substrates suitable for multiple cell types and experimental settings.
