Microflow CVO offers line of stainless steel micromixers. The precision-engineered devices have a multilayer network of channels designed to meet pharmaceutical manufacturer needs.
Dime-sized mixers perform a critical step in chemical operations including nanoparticle synthesis, precision blending and laboratory automation. The microfluidics architecture leverages integrated-circuit design concepts to create devices that can be scaled and designed to specifications.
The technology addresses the problem of how to efficiently mix two liquids with consistently high-quality results. Manufacturers commonly perform this step in large vats where batches of liquids are stirred and then processed.
In contrast, microfluidic technologies push liquids through channels slightly larger than a human hair where mixing occurs under precisely controlled conditions.
The stainless steel microreactors, perform better, cost less and can be customized easily for existing processing operations, the company reports.
The company currently offers two products for sale and will expand its offerings to more than 15 by the end of the calendar year. The additional offerings will provide options in flow rates, fluid inputs, and operational scale.
