Lab for Thin Films - Nanobiomaterials - Nanosystems - Nanometrology


LTFN makes use of cutting-edge equipment and 2 Pilot Lines for nanomaterials synthesis, characterization and in vitro studies. Facilities include cell culture, coating and 3D electrospraying deposition and printing systems, while a fully equipped chemical laboratory is available for nanoparticles, nanofibers and nanofilms development and biofunctionalization.
This research field, includes the design, development, validation and production of drug delivery nanosystems and biomedical devices, smart nanomaterials, nanoporous delivery platforms, scaffolds for tissue regeneration, nanoparticles for in vivo diagnostics, treatment of diseases etc.

Products & Applications

  • Biodegradable nanoparticles with Anti-oxidant drugs for reduction of Oxidative Stress
  • Biodegradable scaffolds for Drug Delivery and Tissue Engineering (CVDs, Osteoathritis, Wound healing, etc.)
  • Nanoporous materials loaded with Drugs, 3D Printing and 3D BioPrinting
  • Biodegradable nanosystems deposited onto implants (Stents and Orthopedics)
  • Nanoparticles onto surfaces to enhance antimicrobial and antibacterial behavior

Equipment for the in-vitro biological and cytocompatibility characterization

incub1  incub2

CO2 Incubator

for the maintenance of cell cultures (human and animal) and cytocompatibility protocols.


hood1  hood2

Laminar Hood

for the preperation and implementation of various cytocompatibility tests and cell sub-culturing.


centri1  centri2


commonly used for the separation of components in a complex mixture. Wide variety of use as it concerns separation of organic phases of nanoparticles as well as sedimentation of cells' pellet.


Elisa Plate Reader



Optical Microscope

used on a large scale in the studies od cell structure's evaluation morphology, nanostructures like fiber-based scaffolds in order to justify their surface topography characteristics.


It is a nanofabrication process for the spraying of natural, synthetic polymers and composite solutions to form nanostructured coatings (either fibres or particles) deposited on a conductive substrate using electrostatic force.


Widely used technique for the production of thin films of polymeric materials on different surfaces in order to produce homogenous coating of high thickness and uniformity for a long time. Variety application in sensors, membranes, hydrogels and antimicrobial surfaces.

System with the ability to isolate and maintain cells or even whole tissues for a long time, without the susceptible to damage caused by chemical reactivity, by cooling and freezing at low temperatures (-80oC).

Basic tool for the evaluation of cells’ viability proliferation’s behavior. Luminometer can measure UV and visible light, thus provide useful informationσ about light absorbance, that is used for a wide variety of assays including MTT assays, ATP assays, cellular luminescence, enzyme activity assays, and cell-based assays for drug delivery.
