MFIC Announces Opening of Microfluidics Technology Center
NEWTON, MA | Posted on June 21st, 2007
MFIC Corporation (MFIC or the Company)(OTCBB: MFIC) today announced the opening of the Microfluidics Technology Center, a state-of-the-art research and discovery facility located at the MFIC company headquarters in Newton, MA. MFIC is an industry-leader in fluid formulation processing equipment to produce the most uniform and smallest liquid and solid particles available for the biotech, pharmaceutical, chemical, personal care and food industries.
"The Microfluidics Technology Center will house our highly-specialized research team, dedicated to advancing the formulation field by developing new applications for Microfluidics' technology and pursuing groundbreaking work in the field of nanotechnology," said Dr. Thomai Panagiotou, Vice President of Research and Development. "We are very excited about the Center and believe it will serve as an innovation hub, playing a critical role in unlocking countless formulation solutions for our customers—including potentially life-saving drugs—that to date could not be formulated."
The Microfluidics Technology Center will provide customers full access to the Company's R&D engineers and complete product suite to prepare, characterize and optimize formulation samples. Engineers will also assist customers in improving their existing products through reformulation using proprietary, leading-edge, high-shear Microfluidizer® materials processors.
"The opening of the Center demonstrates our ongoing commitment to advancing the industry and to providing the highest quality of service to our customers," said Bob Bruno, President and Chief Operating Officer. "While we have always worked closely with customers to solve their most challenging formulation problems, the Microfluidics Technology Center will maximize this experience by providing access to the best engineers and the most advanced equipment in a single-laboratory setting designed specifically with our customers' unique needs in mind."
