Abstract

We present the first prototype of a new concept grasping device whose overall size has been reduced as much as permitted by a new NEMS-based fabrication procedure. The fabrication processes used are compatible with rigid or flexible substrates and the materials employed are biocompatible and chemically inert. The jaws lumen size is adequate to the mechanical manipulation of micro- and sub-microscaled objects and organic matter like bacteria. The proposed device represents a promising solution for pick-transport-place operation and biological experiments for future space exploration missions.
