Norcada NanoPore Devices

Norcada NanoPore-embedded devices (NTPR and NXPR) combine our membrane technology with our high-accuracy nanofabrication to provide you with a single pore in each device, as small as 7.0nm diameter. The devices are designed for Genomics, Proteomics and other nanopore applications, as well as 2D film characterization. NanoPore devices are available with a variety of customization options and additional features.

Standard Features:
▪ Silicon frames, round or square form factor, 3mm to 10mm lateral dimensions
▪ High Resistivity (-HR) or Low Resistivity (-LR) Silicon frame
▪ SiNx window sizes 5µmx5µm to 1mmx1mm
▪ SiNx membrane thickness of 12nm to 500nm
▪ Pore diameters of 7nm to 2000nm
▪ 3nm dia. pores as special order
▪ Noise reducing SiO2 Under Layers (UL) between the SiNx layer and the Silicon frame, not present in the membrane area
▪ Hydrophilic SiOx Top Layer (TL) coatings for enhanced wettability

Additional Features:
▪ Multiple SiNx windows, NanoPores, or nanofluidics on a single chip
▪ SiO2 membranes available upon request
▪ Alignment markers, fluidic channels/ports, and/or electrodes
▪ Glass support frames
▪ Entropic or sample mixing chambers under or above the pore/membrane layer
▪ Custom frame sizes, thickness, and resistivity also available

To ensure the quality of our NanoPore devices, we inspect every processing lot in TEM for quality, cleanliness, and accuracy. Every device is cleaned to semiconductor grade quality, and individually inspected with optical microscopy prior to cleanroom-packaging to ensure all devices are ready for your experiments.

Norcada Nanopore-Ready Devices

Our Nanopore-Ready platform (NBPX and NBPT series) offers a square silicon nitride membrane window at the centre of a 200µm-thick silicon frame. The low stress silicon nitride membrane (SiNx) is tailored to have a smooth surface finish, with more tightly controlled thickness compared to our microscopy membrane devices (NX or NT product lines). All devices are individually inspected before being packaged at Norcada.

Norcada’s controlled manufacturing, quality control and packaging processes make the devices more suitable for break down, Helium/ Gallium Focused Ion Beam and other nanopore fabrication processes.

The Silicon frame for the NBPX and NBPT devices have optional resistivity, with High Resistivity (-HR) options at >3,500 ohm.cm, or a Low Resistivity (-LR) options at 10-20 ohm.cm
