Welcome to the home of Micropore Technologies. We are your authoritative source for everything to do with using membrane emulsification for the development and manufacture of precision micro-capsules, micro-particles and emulsions.
Formulation science is challenging because, while there are many different approaches, achieving the highest performance from a formulation often requires unsatisfactory compromises.
With the launch of the Micropore AXF-7, in June 2019, the question of scalability of membrane emulsification is no longer in doubt. The technology has finally come of age. Homogenisation is no longer the default option. Micropore can now deliver precision microcapsules and microparticles at any scale from lab to kilotonne manufacturing.
Peer reviewed papers have long shown that, with more tightly controlled production parameters, membrane emulsification is capable of delivering higher quality formulations with:
Working with Micropore was a very positive experience for us. The speed with which we progressed reflects how user-friendly we found the Micropore equipment.
Micropore launches AFX-7 1500 kg/hr membrane emulsification unit
26 June 2019
Micropore has launched the latest up-scaling of their award-winning membrane emulsification technology. The Micropore AXF-7 is a high throughput device, capable of the continuous manufacturing of in excess of 10,000 tonnes a year of high-quality emulsions, with tuneable particle size distribution. This new technology offers the precision of microfluidic particle creation at the production volume potential of traditional industrial homogenisation, together with the opportunity for hugely improved energy efficiency.
The Micropore AXF-7 builds on the proven performance of our AXF-1 unit. Now, for the first time, manufacturers can benefit from crossflow membrane emulsification, with all of its inherent advantages, at mass production volumes previously only possible with large-scale homogenisation equipment.”
