MicroSurfaces Inc. (MSI) is a startup stage company founded to commercialize surface coating technologies. MSI is addressing the emerging industry of Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS), including microarray and microfluidics. The latter two are also called BioMEMS. For micromachines, MSI's technology provides a low surface energy coating which eliminates the tendency of MEMS parts to stick together or slide poorly; a problem referred to as "stiction", and reduces the problem of long term performance drift due to surface changes. In BioMEMS, MSI's technology provides low background coatings for the immobilization of biomolecues, such as DNA and proteins, etc., and surface modification for microfluidic devices.
