We are happy to announce that we started to work with our new 3D Bioprinter - Gesim: BioScaffolder BS 3.2, which enables us to prepare:

  • Multi materials prints in x-y-z axis with up to four materials simultaneously at 50 µm resolutions.
  • 3D and core shell structures by extrusion composed of polymer (hydro)gels and pastes.
  • Extrusion printed 3D structures from thermoplastic materials up to 250 °C processing temperature.
  • Melt electro-writing of thermoplastic nanofibers.
  • Piezo-pipetting of life cells, reactive liquids or biomolecules.
  • UV-Photocuring of prints.
  • Working under sterile conditions.

Our partners from Institute Jožef Stefan, Department F4 under the leadership of Prof. Miran Mozetič, are working with us on the model surface peptide modification and characterization using XPS and ToF-SIMS. The cooperation includes the active participation of our students from TU Graz.

Congratulations! | To our new PhD Patrick Weber, supervised by Ao.Univ.-Prof. Arnold Stütz.

"Current for surface science". | We are happy to announce the receipt and installation of our new Garmy Reference 600+ potentiostat / galvanostat coupled with our quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation. The combined system allows us to perform gravimetric, viscoelastic and electrical measurements on surfaces. Phenomena such as corrosion, deposition and other redox-reactions at interfaces can be analyzed in detail.
