Microfluidics Corp launched a dedicated, internal PureNano Group (PNG) to develop go-to-market strategies for PureNano, a processing technology used to create tailored nanomaterials through crystallization, chemical reaction, and nano-encapsulation. Applications of the technology include nanotechnology-based novel pharmaceuticals, functional foods, and catalysts.

"Our PureNano Technology is a leap forward for materials engineering in producing the purest, most uniform nano-sized substances available anywhere," said Thomai (Mimi) Panagiotou, PhD, Microfluidics chief technology officer.

Panagiotou will head the group. The PNG team will also include: MIT Chemical Engineering senior faculty member Robert J. Fisher, PhD; PureNano engineering manager Ken Chomistek; and Microfluidics global sales support manager Tom Speed.

Over the next six months PNG’s business objectives will include establishing PureNano customer interactions, services, and implementation; assuring that each PureNano unit is implemented successfully; creating market knowledge about the technology’s capabilities; and developing and integrating a comprehensive sales training module.
