Specialist Particles and Emulsions
Our patented Torsional Particle Generation Systems (LTS-1/PTS-1) can produce uniformly dispersed particles between 15µm and 500µm+.
Micropore's patented batch or continuous production particle generation systems each features intelligence, innovation and reliability at their core. Our 100% stainless steel, enclosed or open systems, are ideal for the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, food and cosmetics industries.
Our membranes are capable of producing a chosen particle size with a coefficient of variation (CV) of circa 10% - 15% on a scalable basis from 1 – 30Kg/day. Our system is robust and reliable allowing us to either make particles for you, or for you to run the equipment at your own site.
The scalability of our system allows us to work with you from laboratory formulation, to testing and on to full production tonnages, without re-engineering the production process. This minimises both time and costs.
Our system can produce particles, resins and beads. Both gel and macroporous particles can contain a tailored internal pore structure making them ideal for biopharma types of separations.
Micropore's technology delivers:
and our expertise in specialist particle production includes:
Micropore's processes are designed to be scalable - from laboratory formulation testing to production tonnages. This enables meaningful laboratory data to be used to scale a process to production volumes.
The system is easy to control and has a lower factory space requirement (footprint) than conventional stirred tank technology.
The Micropore patented manufacturing techniques provide uniform droplets and particles and lead to 100% production success in the desired size range. There is no waste compared to conventional manufacturing techniques. Using Micropore technology results in significantly lower energy and waste disposal costs.
Reliability and Reproducibility:
Micropore’s technology enables highly reliable and reproducible production of batches of materials. This is especially important in production environments when pH is adjusted; our techniques lead to no 'bad batches’ to be disposed of.
The Micropore systems are easy to control and do not require time consuming and costly specialist operator training.
Stainless Steel benefits:
The Micropore equipment is constructed entirely of food grade stainless steel with industry standard hygienic fittings. Additional standards of finish are available for pharmaceutical use. The 100% stainless steel equipment can be run at elevated temperatures.
Micropore’s equipment can be fully enclosed to ensure environmental segregation and product isolation.
The low shear and gentle conditions used during membrane emulsification are ideal to prevent damage to protein based therapies and other sensitive active ingredients.
cGMP designs for production are available.
High Viscosity Materials:
Micropore technology is ideal for the production of creams and pastes and provides exceptionally good mixing even of high viscosity materials.
We provide a service to develop the best release profile for your ingredients and products; using our expertise in encapsulation and formulation technology based on our membrane emulsification processes.
