Formulation Development, Optimization and Characterization


FORMAX

Formulation labs face an increasing demand for high-throughput experimentation.

Chemspeed’s FORMAX allows fully automated formulation development, optimization and characterization

  • Better mapping of the raw material space
  • Systematic screening of process parameters
  • Efficient and easy upscaling
Key Benefits

  • Increase throughput
  • Enhance reproducibility and quality
  • Reduce time to market
  • Enable digitalization
  • Boost innovation
  • Optimize costs

EASY-TO-USE SOFTWARE

AutoSuite software supports fully unattended formulation.
It enables quick execution, monitoring and automated logging of data.

Design of workflow steps on hardware with AutoSuite Editor:

  • Simply drag & drop tasks or pre-programmed templates to define module-based procedures
  • Easily modify all parameters locally thanks to multi-purpose macro tasks combined with if / else and loop conditions

 

Execution & monitoring at module level with AutoSuite Executor:

  • Graphical presentation of module actual data
  • «Start», «Pause» and «Stop» individual modules
  • Visual module status overview

Exemplary workflow for up to 24 formulations per run
Exemplary layout (modular according to your specifications)

The FORMAX robotic platform can be equipped with various tools and accessories from Chemspeed’s portfolio.

Flexibility and versatility by design

  • Dispensing of solids, powders, liquids and highly viscous materials to the milligram resolution while the formulation is being processed
  • Better mapping of the raw material space
  • Systematic screening of process parameters
  • Efficient and easy upscaling
  • Individual control of:
    • Stirring: up to 6’000 rpm, up to 2’000 rpm at 250’000 mPa·s
    • Counter-scraping: up to 185 rpm
    • Jacket temperature: -20 °C to 200 °C, +/- 1 °C
    • Internal temperature: +/- 0.1 °C

Selection of optional features

The FORMAX can be equipped with additional unit operations to increase capabilities:

  • Continuous feed pumps with feed vessels
  • Vacuum connections for degassing and evaporation
  • Viscosity measurement through power uptake
  • pH measurement and control
