Enhance Your Understanding of a Crystallization Process

A common challenge faced by both chemists and engineers is how to achieve an enhanced understanding of the crystallization process.

The EasyMax has provided a powerful, yet nimble platform for chemists and engineers to get a lot of work done.  It has been great to see how well the EasyMax has been embraced, especially for crystallization work.  Simon Rea developed a way to make it even better for particle characterization:

Crystallization Process FBRM PVM EasyMax

At last, you can use the FBRM and PVM simultaneously in your EasyMax!  This new PTFE lid makes it possible to see your: Continue reading

Symposium on Process Safety and Crystallization

On Tuesday, November 2, METTLER TOLEDO held its 1st Symposium in Cambridge, MA, hosted by Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research (NIBR). The success of the Symposium went beyond expectations: 65 scientists representing a large variety of small companies (CoNCERT, Cubist, Tetraphase), larger companies (Pfizer, Dow, Amgen), and research institutions (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) attended the event. The main themes of the Symposium were crystallization and process safety. Des O’Grady and I started by giving an overview of the technologies later covered by the industry speakers: Focused Beam Reflectance Measurement (FBRM®), Particle Video Microscope (PVM®), EasyMax™, RC1, and ReactIR™.
