Alvéole PRIMO – workshop
Among the methods to control cell microenvironment is a rapidly developing process called “micropatterning”, which involves creating protein patterns upon which living cells are cultivated. Alvéole developed an innovative multi-protein photopatterning technique to make experimental manipulations easy and user-friendly.
The Alvéole PRIMO system is based on LIMAP* technology (Light Induced Molecular Adsorption of Proteins) which combine a maskless and contactless photolithography. The combined action of UV and advanced chemicals makes it possible to generate, in only a few seconds, any multi-protein pattern on standard cell culture substrates.
PRIMO can be used for a variety of applications in cell biology such as micropatterning, dynamic patterning, application of different protein gradients on various substrates, cell based assays and tissue engineering. This device is particularly suited for stem cell and primary cell experiments, 3D cell based assays and predictive toxicology.
