Bioinstruments and Microfluidics – About GeSiM

About GeSiMGeSiM was founded 1995 as a spin-off from the Rossendorf Research Center. The company is a non-public and privately held entity.

Building upon a broad expertise in micromachining technologies, GeSiM has evolved into a bioinstrumentation company focusing on submicroliter liquid handling instruments and microfluidics.

GeSiM is specialized in liquid handling automation, microfluidics and micro contact printing. As a leading supplier of submicroliter dispensers GeSiM developed a unique design for piezoelectric pipetting tips, based on silicon-glass chips. The benchtop pipetting system Nano-Plotter runs up to 16 of these accurate dispensers and is mainly used as non-contact arrayer for microarrays, biochips and biosensors. The Nano-Plotter line follows a strictly modular concept and “grows” with the applications of their owners. Post sales upgrade and a variety of accessories help to bridge the gap from research to production. The Nano-Plotter is successfully used for the production of (FDA) certified diagnostic products.

Liquid handling by contact printing is available with the GeSiM micro-contact printers. These instruments transfer sample into tiny 2-dimensional patterns or generate 3-dimensional structures by Nano-Imprint-Lithography (NIL). A patented stamping technology feat
