Paraytec Ltd (York, UK) have sold their 100th ActiPix UV Imaging System. This milestone sale was achieved with licence partners Malvern Panalytical.
The 100th ActiPix system sold was as part of a Malvern Panalytical Viscosizer 200 system. The Viscosizer 200 is an automated low volume viscosity and molecular sizing measurement system. This new technology is driven by UV area imaging, and at its heart is a unique dual-pass capillary system, with two detection windows removing any injection time error. This instrument is ideally placed to serve those working within biopharmaceutical preformulation and formulation development, who need rapid viscosity information on a large number of low volume samples, in order to assess candidate developability.
Malvern Panalytical’s Biopharmaceutical Portfolio Manager, Lisa Newey-Keane, said, “We at Malvern Panalytical are delighted to play a part in Paraytec’s celebration of this landmark sale, and generally to be involved in the development of the Viscosizer 200, a revolutionary new technology which is making a real impact and showing its full potential in early phase formulation development.”
