Novel technology for continuous flow or off line multiparametric analysis of particles, emulsions, powders and microcapsules in complex fluids

Summary

An Italian company patented a technology for multiparametric characterization of micro and nanoparticles for a cheaper, faster and efficacious characterization in biological, industrial and environmental complex fluids and effective quality control processes during lab scale or industrial production. Continuous Flow Analysis of particles in fluids coupled with Flow Field Factionary devices is possible. Technical partnerships and/or commercial agreement with technical assistance are sought.

Partner sought

Type: industrial and academic players involved in the Research and Development and Quality Control of product based on micro and nanoparticles, emulsions, capsules and powders in the fields of pharmaceuticals and healthcare, agropharma and agriculture, food and beverage production, cosmetics, pigments. Role: improvement and advancement of existing methods and products, adaptation and integration of the proposed technology into analytical, inspection, quality control and monitoring applications; The proposer offers commercialization of the technology, installation and technical assistance and implementation support.

Description

The sizing and the characterization of micro and nanoparticles are currently performed by means of traditional methods, usually assuming that particles are all perfect spheres of a known uniform composition. Most of the required information is foreclosed and data are affected by errors which limit the formulation, investigation and monitoring of behaviour and stability of products in pharmaceutics, cosmetics, pigments, food and agrochemicals. An Italian company based in Lombardy region has a novel patented technology for the characterization of micro and nanoparticles in biological, industrial and environmental complex fluids. The technology provides more reliable information, usually foreclosed to traditional technologies, resulting in boosting R&D and quality control (QC) processes during lab scale or industrial production of micro and nanoparticles. It provides more independent parameters for each single measured particle, allowing to: i) distinguish particles of different composition, ii) determine actual size distributions, iii) retrieve information about aspect ratio, iv) control stability/wettability, v) monitor the presence of and characterize aggregates and vi) characterize the contaminants and process scraps in fluids. The technology is suitable for off-line and inline/online Continuous Flow Analysis of particulate; process control in real-time based on particles characteristics to reduce process time and increase synthesis yield. Few minutes are typically required for a measurement and no advance training is required. The technology is able to distinguish between particles and components of complex biological, industrial or environmental fluids, including blood, urine, etc. It opens new opportunities, such as the characterization of particles in the context where they are supposed to operate, the possibility to measure despite the presence of residues of synthesis allowing a quality control without intermediate steps such as filtration or purification or dialysis, and the detection and data rejection from results of gas microbubbles eventually present into the fluids. The company is looking for technical partnerships and/or commercial agreement with technical assistance and services activities.

Advantages and innovations

The technology is able to guarantee a more effective characterization boosting R&D and QC processes during lab scale or industrial production.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
