MIP Technologies Launches ExploraSep™
Product News Mar 07, 2006
MIP Technologies AB has announced the launch of ExploraSep™, a screening concept for selective separation. The company will officially launch the service at the Pittcon Conference, Orlando, USA, March 12-17 2006.
MIP claims that, a continuously evolving library of molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) sorbents with a developing range of functional characteristics will be used to discover 'hits' for customers who have demands in selective separation or extraction.
"Screening libraries for drug hits in the Pharma industry is a normal everyday activity but screening libraries to find separation materials is quite novel," said Dr Anthony Rees, CEO of MIP Technologies.
"Our approach will exploit the well known phenomenon of 'cross-reactivity'. While a particular MIP may have been created with a particular molecule or group of similar molecules in mind, the fact is there is no such thing as absolute specificity so that other molecules will certainly be found to bind to the same sites."
"We already have convincing demonstrations of the concept which we think will lift separation technology to a new dimension."
