YouTube Video: PowTech/TechnoPharm 2010 Innovation Award for METTLER TOLEDO FBRM C35

Earlier I posted that the METTLER TOLEDO Particle System Characterization group won an Innovation Award at the PowTech/TechnoPharm 2010 Exhibition for their FBRM C35 product for real-time monitoring of high-shear granulation and other challenging particulate processes.

In this video, Carl Phillip, Business Area Manager for Particle System Characterization, gives a short interview explaining why they earned the Innovation Award:

METTLER TOLEDO receives POWTECH award for Top Innovation in Particle Characterization and Material Sciences

Powtech-FBRM-C35-METTLER-TOLEDO-innovation-award

Dr. Markus Adamczyk, representing METTLER TOLEDO, accepts the award for top innovation in particle characterization and material science from Frank Jablonski and Gerd Kielburger

A couple of weeks ago, I posted an article about my colleagues’ attendance at POWTECH in Nuremberg. I was recently informed that while in Nuremberg, they accepted an award for this year’s most outstanding innovation in the field of Particle Characterization and Material Science at POWTECH. I thought I would share some of the details with you:
