A recent research study by Fact.MR finds that the microreactor sales reached 294 thousand units in 2018 and are projected to grow at a Y-O-Y of nearly 9% in 2019. Increasing competition among manufacturing companies in order to develop finer products remains a key aspect spurring the demand for microreactor technology. Ability of microreactor technology to facilitate effective and efficient drug synthesis is one of the key factors responsible for its rising adoption in the pharmaceutical industry.
The report finds that increasing demand for process intensification has inspired various chemical industries to adopt microreactor technology. Capability of microreactor technology to enable continuous reactions in small channels instead of large-scale components, which results in effective mixing of the reagents and seamless heat transfer, is enhancing its visibility as compared to the conventional technologies. Moreover, inherently safer design with high efficacy has also been identified to boost utilization of microreactor technology in challenging applications areas of the chemical industry.
Microreactor Technology Gains Ground as Key Enabler of One-Step Reactions with Minimal Wastage
Use of microreactor has witnessed a notable rise in multiple industrial ecosystems, such as chemical and pharmaceutical, on the wake of its ability to offer high-throughput with use of minimum amount of materials. Moreover, the one-step reactions enabled by microreactor technology aids in elimination of the risk associated with waste products, resulting in high-quality end-products, which drives its adoption across end-use verticals to achieve unparalleled productivity.
“Microreactor technology is also being widely acknowledged by various end-use industries for its ability to catalyze faster reactions, which also ensures higher yields of up to cent percent with no compromise in terms of quality. Microreactors have evolved as a standard tool for end users for ameliorating quality via accurate control of crucial operation parameters, ranging from pressure to space velocities”, Senior Analyst, Fact.MR
With 157 thousand units sold in 2018, the demand for falling film microreactor thrives on the back of its larger specific surface area as compared to the conventional reactors, finds Fact.MR. Asia micro reactor remains the most prominent mixing type and is likely to witness remarkable growth in the forthcoming years, driven by efficacy in terms of resistance and transparency.
The report further states that sales of each material type will remain highly influenced by the specific advantages and disadvantages offered by in terms of price and compatibility with the reagents or heat conductivity. Glass microreactor remains the top-selling variant on the wake of its superior compatibility with aggressive media and reagents. Moreover, benefits of glass microreactors in terms of transparency and convenience has been widely acknowledged, which has further triggered their adoption across various end-use industries.
Significant Benefits over Batch Processing to Foster Popularity
Microreactor technology is becoming highly appealing to the production departments in the pharmaceutical industry, followed by specialty chemicals. Benefits of continuous-flow processes over batch chemistry remain instrumental in heightened adoption of microreactor technology in both pharmaceutical and specialty chemicals landscape, translating into fast-paced synthesis of organic compounds amidst hazardous conditions with minimized waste. Moreover, the adoption of microreactor technology also offers additional benefits in terms of capital investment and operating expenses with notable reduction of the ‘time-to-market’ aspect, which is bolstering its adoption across diverse end user industry verticals.
GODFREY, IL — There was a time not that long ago when it appeared that a 14-year-old Pitbull mix named Wiggles would never find a home other than the shelter in downstate Godfrey where she had been housed for the past 11 years.
Despite the efforts of those who looked after Wiggles at the 5A’s Animal Shelter to get her noticed, the dog who came to the facility in 2010 when she was just 3 years old never seemed to garner any serious attention.
But after years of waiting, Wiggles has found a new home.
According to a television report, Wiggles came to the shelter after she developed allergies that became too expensive for her former owners to afford. So the workers who look after the animals in the kennel in the shelter took over Wiggles’ care, hoping a new owner would eventually show to adopt the lovable dog with the unshakable name.
Wiggles, who spent the past 11 years at a downstate Illinois animal shelter, was adopted by a new owner over the weekend. (5A’s Animal Shelter)
Six years after she arrived at 5As, however, Wiggles developed a cantaloupe-sized tumor. A veterinarian determined the tumor was benign and would just be needed to be watched to ensure it didn’t lead to any further issues, the report said.
In the years since, employees at the 5A’s shelter never saw any impact on Wiggles’ ability to run or play, the television station reported. But the combination of the tumor, Wiggles’ age and allergies kept her from being adopted, workers feared.
The shelter attempted to raise funds to have the tumor removed, but veterinarians feared that Wiggles was too old to undergo the operation. The search for a new home for Wiggles continued as employees at the shelter did their best to make a case for adoption.
Last month, the shelter made a heart-felt plea on its Facebook page. The post said after 11 years, the shelter was making it their 2021 New Year’s Resolution to find Wiggles a forever home. The post stated while that Wiggles didn’t seem to care for other dogs, she was fine with cats and kids – as long as they understand she’s on the other side, the post said.
Finally, the call came over the weekend when a pet lover from St. Louis called and said they wanted to bring Wiggles home.
Shelter director Rick Jun called the new owner a great fit for Wiggles, making for a happy ending – more than a decade after the dog arrived at the facility.
