Today at ACHEMA 2009 conference in Frankfurt, Germany (11-15 May), Microfluidics
debuted its revolutionary Microfluidics Reaction Technology (MRT) to a global
audience. Combining an impinging jet processor with expert process development
in collaboration with the Microfluidics Technology Center, MRT enables continuous
drug crystallization, efficient nanoencapsulation synthesis of fine chemicals
through single or multiphase reactions, and process intensification.
The exclusive bottom-up technology has demonstrated the ability to produce
high purity nanoparticles 40% smaller than any other method for a wide variety
of drugs. MRT has received a Nano50™ Award for its contributions to nanotechnology
innovations and improvements.
Microfluidics Chief Technology Officer, Thomai “Mimi” Panagiotou,
Ph.D., will be at ACHEMA exhibit hall 5.0, booth F34, to meet individually with
researchers from the biopharmaceutical, chemical, energy and other industries
to discuss solutions for complex formulation challenges.
“Microfluidizer® processors are well-known around the world for their
superior top-down particle size reduction capabilities, unique uniformity and
repeatable results during scaleup,” said Dr. Panagiotou. “With the
introduction of MRT, we are able to supplement and expand these leading product
offerings to help customers achieve results that are simply not possible using
any other technology. By leveraging the broad nanotechnology applications experience
of research engineers in our lab, in conjunction with a specially configured
processor, companies with demanding particle size and precise properties control
requirements will finally be able to reach their goals.”
In addition to MRT, the Microfluidics team at ACHEMA will exhibit the popular
flagship M-110P “Plug and Play” processor, which features continuous
operation at pressures up to 2069 bar (30,000 psi) on a standard electrical
outlet, with no need for compressed air or hydraulic cooling water. The company
will also offer a complimentary sample processing in the Microfluidics Technology
Center to qualified companies at ACHEMA.
Conference attendees at the Microfluidics exhibit booth will be eligible to
win a complimentary Process Development Consulting engagement or customized
application-specific training session. Visit www.microfluidicscorp.com or email
