INTERPHEX created a quick questionnaire to
learn more about Microfluidics International
Corporation and their technology. In this
exhibitor spotlight, Yang Su, New Technology
Manager, answers our questions.
INTERPHEX: How has your company evolved into
what it is today?
Microfluidics International Corporation originated more
than thirty years ago, offering superior solutions to
mission-critical problems within niche markets in the
pharmaceutical, biotechnological, chemical, and other
industries—achieving stable nano/micro particles with the
application of a new fluid flow principle to highly engi-
neered products. The result was the development, man-
ufacture, and marketing of Microfluidizer™ processors.
The product portfolio has since been greatly expanded;
today, our products range from lab-scale to full produc-
tion models. We also satisfy the requirements of the
pharmaceutical industry with cGMP/21CFR 11-compliant
INTERPHEX: How has the industry changed/evolved?
Customers are looking for more inclusive systems
from vendors. The equipment should also be easily inte-
grated into their existing systems or plants. Microfluidics’
products have evolved to the extent that designs and fea-
tures are well-positioned for the on-going trends/changes
occurring within the industry.
INTERPHEX: Can you describe three aspects that
have allowed your company to succeed?
The key factor that allows us to stay
ahead of competitors and serve the niche market
with innovative products, utilizing cutting-edge
. Outstanding/Highly Engaged Team:
We represent an
organization that operates within an environment of
team work/collaboration that enables each of us to
be involved in work that brings out our best. This
is reflected in our core values: trust, team, and
. Effective Operating Model:
The IDEX Operating
Model provides a framework for running a truly great
enterprise, through which we are able to achieve both
our financial and business goals.
INTERPHEX: What distinguishes your company from
others in the industry?
Our state-of-the-art Microfluidizer™ technology, offer-
ing constant pressure and a proprietary fixed geometry
interaction chamber, delivers the best-in-class process
results, repeatability, and scalability to our customers
INTERPHEX: What don't most people realize about
you or your company?
Most people don’t realize that microfluidics has noth-
ing to do with the “lab-on-a-chip” version of microfluidic
technology. The only ideology that the two technologies
share is the implementation of microscale domains.
Microfluidizer™ technology generates an extremely high
shear rate and impact forces with high pressure energy,
while conventional microfluidic technology resides on the
opposite end of the spectrum.
INTERPHEX: What are you looking forward to at
INTERPHEX this year?
I would like to see more technical sessions being
offered so I can learn something new and expand my
knowledge base. As a technical person, I am always in-
terested in seeing what’s new in the market and what
transpires within our industry. As a company, we are con-
tinuously looking for new product offerings/technology
with possible inclusions into our equipment to enable us
to offer the best possible solutions to our customers. n
