High-Throughput & High-Output Specialty Chemicals R+D

Clariant Innovation Center Has Chosen Chemspeed’s High-Throughput & High-Output Sample Preparation, Formulation and Process Research Solutions for Accelerated & Standardized Specialty Chemicals R+D

December 2015 – In order to accelerate and standardize its Specialty Chemicals R+D and Innovation in Care Chemicals, Natural Resources, Catalysis and Plastics & Coatings, Clariant Innovation Center in Frankfurt Germany, has chosen Chemspeed’s High-Throughput & High-Output Workflows for:

based on Chemspeed-pioneered, fully automated, individually controlled and operated formulation vessels as well as process reactors in conjunction with its proprietary unrivalled overhead gravimetric dispensing of solid, liquid and highly viscous liquid raw materials.

The head of High Throughput Experimentation (HTE) Technology Module, Lucius Kemp states: “It’s easier to automate a repeating process, like a production line, than it is in research and development. The former is compiled static repetitive actions, where the latter is an ever changing environment that requires a more fluid like solution. My group is Clariant’s central HTE laboratory, providing high throughput capabilities to all its research sectors. As one could imagine, we required a technical environment with high capacity, capability, flexibility and stability to service such a wide variety of research areas. Chemspeed’s technology provide the vast scope of capabilities needed to successfully service all of our research sectors. Chemspeed’s “plug and play” technology gives my team the ability to quickly assemble needed components and tools to carry out desired experiments and allow highly efficient transitions from project to project. One of the most important features for automating a bench process is the ability to reproduce each step on the automated instrument. Chemspeed platforms are designed to eliminate compromises in duplication of experimental tasks, and in many cases introduce improvements. We have added several Chemspeed platforms to automate the entire flow from chemical / ingredient dispensing, to synthesis, to process development and on to formulation. The addition of the Chemspeed technology into our HTE environment has enhanced our automated assisted research efforts greatly.”
