Blacktrace launches Particle Works, a nano- and microstructure specialist brand

Blacktrace Holdings Limited, a leading group of companies focused on Productizing Science®, will be launching its latest brand, Particle Works, at the NANOTEXNOLOGY 2016 conference in Thessaloniki, Greece, from the 4th to the 8th of July. The Blacktrace group’s many years of expertise and world-leading capabilities in the design, development and manufacture of automated microfluidic continuous flow equipment provide the perfect foundation for this newly created brand specializing in high performance nano- and microstructured materials.

Particle Works designs and fabricates a wide range of metal nanoparticles, quantum dots and hydrogels with tight control of critical parameters such as particle size, shape and architecture and supplies them with comprehensive characterization data. These standard products are designed to maximize material performance – including catalytic activity, magnetic strength and optical resonance – helping to standardize processes and accelerate development across a wide range of disciplines. The Particle Works team can also provide customer-specific services to simplify and accelerate proof of principle, materials optimization and scale-up studies.
