In the chemical field it is not easy to produce certain products in the same quality. Automation is still rare in in this sector.
A German start-up (in foundation) has developped a (laboratory) machine for the synthesis of nanoparticle suspensions for use in R&D. The machine is fully automated and provides high purity nanoparticle suspensions of various materials (metals, alloys, semiconductors, ceramics, organics, plastics) in a short time (20 min, 10 to 100 ml at 100 mg/l) and with little effort.
The start-up team consists of an economist, a scientist, and a technician.
