Tulane University Polymer Spinoff Company Releases Products
Advanced Polymer Monitoring Technologies Inc. (APMT), a spin-off company from Tulane University, recently announced it has released two products for polymer and biotechnology applications. APMT reportedly entered into an exclusive license agreement with Tulane for a number of patents and patent applications invented by professor Wayne F. Reed, director of the Tulane Center for Polymer Reaction Monitoring and Characterization (PolyRMC).
The technology for the company’s automatic continuous online monitoring of polymer reactions product line was reportedly developed in Reed’s lab over the past 16 years. The commercialization of this technology can allow manufacturers to continuously monitor fundamental polymer properties during the reaction, reportedly enabling more efficient control over product quality, as well as the use of production, feedstock, and energy inputs.
Argen is a new, 16-channel light scattering tool that can enable researchers and manufacturers to rapidly and continuously monitor the stability of their products under varying stressor conditions. Applications include characterization of biopharmaceutical stability, polymer degradation, and stability of other formulations such as paints, electronic materials, and nano-particle suspensions.
