ANFF-SA offers access to more than $10 million of equipment and technical excellence in design, fabrication, and testing of micro-scale devices.

 

The facility’s strengths include lab-on-a-chip technology, micro/nanofluidics, advanced sensing, functional coatings, and separation science.

 

Surface structures and patterns, channel designs, and chemical functionality can be tailored to your needs, through access or partnership with the professional staff.

 

The facility houses state-of-the-art photolithography, micromachining, hot embossing and bonding, micro-injection moulding, plasma etching, thin film coating, fluidic simulation, and advanced characterisation in ISO Class 5 & 6 cleanroom environments.

 

The facility is co-located at the University of South Australia and Flinders University, which offer extensive materials and surface spectroscopy capabilities available to ANFF-SA users.

 

Where research or process development is required, ANFF-SA can offer the scientific expertise at the host universities.
