Millipore offers mixing solutions evaluation service

April 4, 2008

Billerica, Mass. — Millipore Corporation has announced the introduction of a new service designed as a flexible toolbox to help customers find the most efficient solution for their specific mixing applications.

Millipore’s PreValidation Service package combines the experience of application specialists with an extensive portfolio of test equipment enabling simulations of full scale mixing processes. The PreValidation Center outside Gothenburg, Sweden, and the Bioprocess Manufacturing Sciences Group lab in Billerica, Mass., facilitate comparative studies, particle downsizing and emulsification efficiency trials, as well as optimization of mixing efficiency and suspension of solids. The mixing specialists can help customers upscale or downscale their manufacturing processes.

Millipore also can conduct on-site trials using a range of portable test equipment. The modularized concept makes this a convenient alternative for evaluations of new mixing technologies, low-shear mixers, upstream mixers and high-shear mixers in a real production environment.

Evaluating mixing solutions in trials prior to specifying a process reduces the risk of potentially costly surprises. Investing in the PreValidation service package from Millipore saves time and costs by identifying the most efficient and reliable option early in the decision making process.
