  • Publication number: 20210147790
    Abstract: A method of transferring material using a picking pin having a distal tip includes: forming a first coating of organic molecules on at least a portion of the distal tip of the picking pin; dipping at least a portion of the coated distal tip in a first source such that an amount of material is picked up from the first source and attached to the first coating; dipping the coated distal tip attached with the amount of material into a first target so as to release some of the amount of the material to the first target; and removing the first coating from the distal tip. The procedure can be repeated for transferring additional material from the same or different source to the same or different targets.
