PDMS Stencil

The multi-well solution

With its multiple wells, the PDMS Stencil reduces the volumes of reagents used and accommodates different experimental conditions on the same substrate.

Several wells, several possibilities

Because research work can only be successful after many tests and continuous optimization, we have developed a multi-well membrane, so you can multiply your experimental conditions on the same substrate and save on reagents.

The PDMS Stencil is thin and flexible, making it easy to use and place on all flat substrates (glass, plastic, or PDMS).

Two standard formats are available:
  • total surface: Ø 20 mm, 4 circular wells Ø 4 mm
  • total surface: 20×20 mm, 9 square wells of 3×3 mm

For very specific requirements, we can also design tailor-made models.

How to use the PDMS Stencil

1. Lift the plastic protective film to reveal one of the PDMS Stencils. Remove the PDMS from the well using needle-nose pliers.

2. Pinch one of the PDMS Stencil corners and remove it from the sheet. Clean it with 70% ethanol and dry it (with warm blown air for example).

3. Place the PDMS Stencil on a clean substrate (after plasma treatment if required) and remove any air bubbles by tapping it.

4. Add your reagents in the various wells and carry out your micropatterning experiments.
