BlackHoleLab softlithographyThe origins

BlackHole Lab has been created to provide turnkey soft lithography stations to research laboratories. In 2008 , during their Phd in microfluidics,  BlackHole Lab founders saw the need for numbers of laboratories to have their own microfabrication facilities in order to make their own chips quickly and easily. They developed in 2009 their first generation of softlithography station for researches institutes in Paris and Philadelphia. After several years of improvement , Black Hole lab now provide a full range of turnkey soft lithography station all over the world through the Softlithobox brand.


The BlackHole Lab approach

Usually microfluidic chips are made in a clean room but the purchase and maintenance of one is really expensive. So the tricky idea was to propose a set of equipment usable out of a clean room and with the same efficiency.After several years of research and test, we found a well-thinking set which is working together to give the best answer for microfluidic fabrication. But we are not stoping here and we always improve or adapt our offer to keep at the cutting edge of the technology. We have done the choice to gather numerous PhD inside the company to be as close as possible of our customers, like that we really understand the needs and can exchange on a really wide range of subjects. Finally, our dynamism enables us to be really responsive and flexible to any researchers requests.
