Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This tutorial review provides an outlook on contact-based fabrication methods suitable for biomolecular platforms. Contact-based methods have emerged in response to serial and expensive fabrication techniques that built devices in a serial way, typically point by point or region by region. The review surveys the biological applications of microcontact printing and affinity contact printing. There is a special focus on DNA printing methods harnessing the supramolecular interactions between two complementary DNA strands.
