Introduction

There is immense pressure on start-ups and midsized companies to deliver new products. Both small companies and large established companies feel pressure to cut research and development costs. The growing commercial pressure and rising research and development costs have prompted these companies to seek support for their testing and consulting needs. Allegiance NanoSolutions has proven to be an extremely valuable partner to companies that are looking to reduce their overhead costs and improve the quality of their analysis. Allegiance NanoSolutions provides their partners the ability to focus on the core competence of their business.

Nanomaterial Manufacturing Problem

A nanotechnology based company involved in the manufacturing of nanoparticles developed a problem of controlling the properties of the material when produced in different quantities. The desired properties were seen in the lab prepared samples; however the properties of these nanomaterials appeared to be changing, when manufactured in large quantities. Allegiance NanoSolutions’ expert team was contacted to analyze the situation and solve the problem.

The Solution

The team at Allegiance studied the bulk manufacturing and lab preparation processes and collected the necessary samples. Thorough analysis of these samples revealed the generation of contaminants in the material that was manufactured in bulk. The Allegiance team was able to identify and prove the source of contamination, and helped the customer eliminate the problem by incorporating a method to purify the preparation in the overall manufacturing process.

Summary

Allegiance NanoSolutions was able to provide this company with effective and timely results, allowing them to move forward with their operations. This project not only saved time and money for the end user, but Allegiance NanoSolutions was also able to offer a definite solution to their problem as well.
