Stratophase heads £1.2m project to develop real-time high value liquid monitoring systems

03-Mar-2010 - USA

Stratophase announced that, as part of a consortium of companies, it is developing a cost-effective, multi-parametric, multi-point, in-line sensor system for high-value liquid production processes. Utilising Stratophase's advanced SpectroSens optical microchip technology, this £1.2m project will initially tackle complex production processes, such as those associated with active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) and butanol-based biofuels. Highly accurate, real-time and data-rich 'fingerprints' of the various manufacturing stages will be produced to enable tighter and more timely control, which will minimise waste and increase yields.

Dr Richard Williams, CEO of Stratophase commented, "Our existing SpectroSens technology has already been successfully demonstrated in a range of different processes including fermentations and continuous flow reactions. We are delighted to have the opportunity to build on this success with this new project."
