New Service Helps Manufacturers Find Mixing Solutions

Millipore Corp. on March 31 introduced 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 a 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. Mixing specialists can help customers upscale or downscale manufacturing processes.

In addition to working at service centers, Millipore 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. Mixing specialists are available for trial support and guidance.

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.
