Where did the use microspheres originate? Microscopic glass beads produced in New York in 1914 are perhaps the earliest examples. By 1922, they were even used to produce movie screen coatings. Today, microspheres offer numerous functional advantages for biopharmaceuticals. For example, they are an extremely versatile solution for novel drug delivery systems.
Vacuum drying methods are a mainstay in chemical process industries (CPI), allowing sensitive materials to be dried without inhibiting critical properties. Any loss of quality across drug pipelines can naturally lead to wasted resources and higher costs. Hence the ubiquity of vacuum drying ovens in pharmaceutical labs, pilot plants, and commercial-scale labs.
Glass Nutsche filter dryers provide controlled filtration of solids from liquids in various chemical processing applications. Using a glass Nutsche filter vessel is advantageous when chemical inertness and visibility are essential.
The agitated Nutsche filter dryer and the Büchner funnel are designed to carry out the same fundamental task – solid-liquid separation. There are, however, significant differences between the two in terms of functionality and applications.
Our Liverpool HQ is as busy as ever, with more vessels arriving for our highly skilled team to begin work on. These are for use on our Filter Dryer and Microsphere Refiner ranges.
