Abstract:
New Cellulose AnaChip™ provides detailed information on surface and interfacial behaviour for fabric care and paper technologists

Farfield Scientific Expands Product Portfolio for FMCG Applications

UK | Posted on August 7th, 2007

Leading surface science and nanometrology company Farfield Scientific ( http://www.farfield-scientific.com ) has launched the latest in its range of AnaChip™ surfaces for detailed characterisation of molecular structure and interaction behaviour.



The new Cellulose AnaChip™ has been developed by Farfield in collaboration with YKI, Stockholm to provide a mimetic surface on which to study molecular-scale behaviour and reaction mechanisms. AnaChip™ surfaces are specifically designed to complement and expand the measurement capabilities of Farfield's AnaLight® Dual Polarisation Interferometry instrument range. Late in 2006, Farfield launched what is being hailed as the first commercially-packaged, nanometrology instrument targeted at the FMCG market place, the AnaLight® NanoFlex™.



The Cellulose AnaChip™ has been developed for critical applications across FMCG industries. It will provide molecular-scale information on surface properties and interactions for paper technology and manufacture. Additionally, the cellulose surface provides a platform for fabric care studies for pre-treatment, washing and conditioning formulations at industry-leading scales of resolution.



Dr Simon Carrington, Marketing Director at Farfield Scientific, adds "The Cellulose AnaChip™ is designed to be used for applications where molecular-scale surface and interfacial measurements are needed in FMCG research, product development and manufacturing. It can be used in any application where companies need to measure and differentiate between molecular levels of adsorption, absorption or desorption at a surface. Examples include the removal of substances such as grease or oil from fabric by surfactants, the deposition of polymers in fabric conditioners or the structure and behaviour of thin ink or coating films on paper. From product performance and claim verification to water and energy conservation to optimisation of manufacturing, the enabling combination of AnaLight® instruments and the Cellulose AnaChip™ will raise the stakes in the understanding of surface science in several FMCG industrial application areas".
