MFIC Announces Opening of Microfluidics Technology Center
News Jun 22, 2007
MFIC Corporation (MFIC) has announced the opening of the Microfluidics Technology Center, a research and discovery facility located at the MFIC company headquarters in Newton, MA.
“The Microfluidics Technology Center will house our highly-specialized research team, dedicated to advancing the formulation field by developing new applications for Microfluidics’ technology and pursuing groundbreaking work in the field of nanotechnology,” said Dr. Thomai Panagiotou, Vice President of Research and Development.
“We are very excited about the Center and believe it will serve as an innovation hub, playing a critical role in unlocking countless formulation solutions for our customers—including potentially life-saving drugs—that to date could not be formulated,” Panagiotou added.
The Microfluidics Technology Center will provide customers full access to the Company’s R&D engineers and complete product suite to prepare, characterize and optimize formulation samples. Engineers will also assist customers in improving their existing products through reformulation using high-shear Microfluidizer® materials processors.
Instead of searching for a needle in a haystack, what if you were able to sweep the entire haystack to one side, leaving only the needle behind? That's the strategy researchers followed in developing a new microfluidic device that separates elusive circulating tumor cells (CTCs) from a sample of whole blood.READ MORE
In of organic chemistry, reactions are notoriously difficult to analyze. As a result, reaction data in chemoinformatics has been much less developed than information about single molecules. In a new project, titled CGRtools, researchers solved a number of problems to better handle reaction information. The software library is significantly richer in functionality than all the existing tools.READ MORE
