MIP Technologies Reports Commercial Scale-up in Production of Molecularly Imprinted Polymers
MIP Technologies AB has announced that it has supplied a multi-national corporation with molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) material for solid phase extraction at the kilogram level.
Typically, MIPs are produced at the gram level by the majority of users in the R&D community.
"This is a major milestone for the technology," commented Anthony Rees, CEO of MIP Technologies.
"Our extensive efforts in the development of robust methods for synthesis of MIPs at the kilo level have now created a path to production at the Process level."
"This capability will propel us into the forefront of specialist separation companies."
"Our ability to produce multi-kilogram quantities of MIPs in single batch reactors will enable us to supply our customers with sufficient quantities of separation materials for any studies at the pilot scale," said Dr Ola Karlsson, VP of Production at MIP Technologies.
"We are already expanding further our capabilities so that batch quantities of 3-5kg per week will be possible."
