Experts in specialist particle and emulsion manufacture, using the newly emerged technique of membrane emulsification and our unique membranes and emulsification technologies. We help our customers to innovate and differentiate their products using mono sized and mono dispersed emulsions, particles and encapsulated particles.
Diverse markets have benefited from Micropore’s leading edge technologies and expertise to solve many challenges in formulation, process and production.
Established over ten years ago as a high-technology spin-out of Loughborough University, Micropore has grown to be an experienced expert in specialist particles and emulsion manufacturing working with a wide portfolio of exciting and demanding clients. We maintain our academic rigour and cutting-edge approach and have developed to be a unique and powerful partner to our clients.
A partner you can rely on
Micropore is a long-term business partner, working as a contract manufacture of emulsions and specialist particles as well as a manufacturer of particle and emuslion equipment. Our research and technology expertise and findings are fed back to our customers in order to refine processes and innovate new technologies.
Key advantages of partnering with Micropore
Substantial increases in yield
Membrane emulsification is a gentle process for the generation of drops and particles. The gentle nature of the production process does not damage sensitive and often expensive raw materials, resulting in increased productivity and lowered costs.
Significant reduction of waste materials
Membrane emulsification provides the drop and particle size that you want. As a result of higher yields and operational consistency, with 100% of material produced within the desired specified size range, clients have reported zero ‘bad batches’ with a major reduction in the cost of waste production, out of specification drops and particles, as well as the avoidance of 'post-processing' to obtain the desired product size.
Many applications across numerous industry sectors
Micropore membrane emulsification membranes have non-tortuous pore channels, similar to sieves and they are made from metal sheets. Our membranes are robust, and they have no internal structure for material to foul. Micropore has delivered benefits in, among others, the low-fat food, chocolate, flavour and fragrance, drug delivery, chromatography, aerospace and cosmetics sectors.
