Advanced Polymer Monitoring Technologies (APMT) has announced they have received over $1.1 million from the National Science Foundation’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program.
The company develops, manufactures and distributes products and services for the real time monitoring, analysis, and control of polymer reactions, solutions, dispersions and suspensions across all synthetic and natural polymer sectors.
Funding from the program will support the development of simultaneous multiple sample light scattering technology for monitoring stability and aggregation of biopharmaceuticals.
APMT has also used this Aggregation Rate Generator product (ARGEN) for other applications in synthetic and natural polymers. According to the release, ARGEN allows measurement of stability and degradation of solutions, dispersions and suspensions under computer controlled thermal, mechanical, and chemical stimulus.
Mike Drenski, CTO of APMT, said their ARGEN team has developed an impressive instrument incorporating proprietary hardware and software.
“Through the generous support of the National Science Foundation, we are able to work directly with selected users to generate ARGEN data on relevant samples free of charge,” said Alex Reed, APMT Chief Executive Officer. “We encourage anyone wishing to learn more about ARGEN’s capabilities in monitoring stability and aggregation in biopharmaceutical applications to contact us for more information.”
