PANDORA cGMP: Lab-Scale Rotary ALD Research Tool

A number of scholars have actually believed that PANDORA’s box contained something that was much less sinister, which is nothing but wishful thinking.

Forge Nano has now designed the PANDORA desktop research tool to help unleash the power of atomic layer deposition (ALD). The tool makes particle atomic-layer deposition easier, quicker and more cost-effective than anything else available on the market at present.

The PANDORA tool can be readily operated out of the box and guarantees a consistent and trouble-free operation around the clock. It brings atomic-level surface engineering to users’ desks.

  • Surpasses global standards
  • Current good manufacturing practice
  • Conforms to cGMP standards

ALD-Enabled Particle Material Equipment

The tool has been developed for the following applications:

  • Bio-pharmaceuticals
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Anti-bacterial and anti-microbial
  • Time-release
  • Powder flowability

With various configurations and modifiable options, this highly compact tool allows ALD analysis in an easily approachable and accessible form factor. With the PANDORA tool, atomic-level surface engineering is literally at the users’ fingertips.

The PANDORA tool has been designed to carry out ALD experiments for a variety of applications, right from day one. When users are ready, Forge Nano can help them upgrade and industrialize their applications via its special Commercialization Program.
