The Dilase 650 is designed for etching out both simple and complex patterns of channels and cavities for custom building of microfluidic devices. Its 375nm laser accurately constructs channel arrays with nanometre precision on silicon wafers that are processed in a cleanroom environment and then used as a template, or mould, for accommodating bacteria and single plant cells during live cell imaging.
