Eindhoven University of Technology spin-off EmulTech last week launched INFINITY: a unit that allows pharmaceutical companies to encapsulate medicines with very high precision. The resulting microparticle all have exactly the same size and medicine content, allowing extremely precise control of delivery. This is very important in applications such as asthma respirators. Encapsulating medicines is currently [...]
In eleven weeks Flowid engineered and constructed a pharmaceutical pilot plant. This plant is in operation since the beginning of 2014 in Flowid’s pilot hall. We look forward to discuss our pilot plant capabilities with you. A static mixer forms the hart of the pilot plant. Flowid is specialised in continues processing based on technologies [...]
Flowid currently exhibits at the Hannover Messe in the Holland High Tech Pavillion. Hall 2 D10. Two transportable production units are presented. The Reactor en Extractor production units are based on the Spinid spinning disc technology. You can watch an interview with Flowid and see the units in operation here. We are looking forward to [...]
Problem Description One of our customers, a large manufacturer of flow reactors in the (pharma) industry, was looking for a suitable testing site to further develop a highly exothermic process using dangerous chemicals. They had had success in small scale research and wanted to optimize and scale up the process. However, after having requested access [...]
The FlowFlex is an automated modular continuous process development platform. The set-up is highly flexible in performing different kinds of flow chemistry based on different continuous technologies. All modules have the same dimensions and can be interconnected easily due to its uniform power, data and process interconnections.
The Eindhoven high-tech companies Flowid B.V. and EmulTech B.V. cooperated in the realization of a unique laboratorial platform for EmulTech’s ET4ME technology. This patented microfluidic technology is used for the development of drug delivery formulations with high degree of uniformity, solubility, tailored release, benign processes and reproducibility. Flowid succeeded in the design and realization of [...]
With this advance, researchers and manufacturers have the opportunity to now incorporate Quantum Materials Tetrapod Quantum Dots into new state-of-the-art electronics products that require industrial scale amounts of material. This new quantum dot production process using a new microreactor and software controlled continuous flow process has been successfully developed and operated for delivery of mass produced [...]
Summary This application Note describes the benefits of micro flow chemistry for biphasic liquid-liquid reactions with a Phase Transfer Catalyzed (PTC) type of reaction. For a model reaction Flowid realized a 3 times higher production rate per day with a higher selectivity (99%) as compared to batch reactions. Due to the continuous nature of the [...]
