The Libraries' plotter is in guest services, not the FabLab, but all the same - the Canon iPF8400 plotter we have also has a max resolution of 1200 dpi
I've not personally needed to look for printing at a higher resolution than this, though there may be some commercial printers in the area who have extremely high resolution printers. Generally, 300dpi is a high-res print and 1200 dpi is ultra high-res beyond what is often used even for extremely detailed fine art applications.
The dot size of a 1200 dpi print should be about 20 microns; if you are looking to print with micron resolution, I would suggest getting in touch with some people in the NanoFab department on campus, as they would be more likely to have dealt with similar technical hurdles in their research.
