FLUIDINOVA is a specialized manufacturer and supplier of synthetic nano-hydroxyapatite and tricalcium phosphate materials marketed as nanoXIM. The high quality standards of our products aim at providing companies around the world that operate in the industries of medical devices, oral care and food. Our focus on customer satisfaction and innovation helps us to establish close relationships with clients to develop the best solutions to incorporate our materials in their final products to address a vast number of applications.
Located in the Porto area, Portugal, FLUIDINOVA was created in 2005 as a spin-off from the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto. Having Computational Fluid Dynamics as core knowledge base the team developed a proprietary technology – NETmix - to perform chemical reactions that require perfect mixing at a micro to nanoscale.
Over time the core business of FLUIDINOVA evolved to the manufacturing and supplying the nanoXIM products using the NETmix technology.
FLUIDINOVA, S.A. develops, produces and markets products based on nano sized calcium phosphates. It is our permanent goal:
|Exceed stakeholder’s expectations, namely customers and shareholders;|
|Ensure continuous improvement and innovation of our processes and products;|
|Ensure the qualification and autonomy of our employees as a way of guaranteeing sustained growth and continuity of the company;|
|Comply with all legal and regulatory requirements applied to our activity and products;|
|Transform failures and risks into opportunities for improvement;|
|Facing mistakes as learning exercises;|
|Ensure periodic monitoring of the achieved results, reviewing and updating company objectives and policy.|
FLUIDINOVA implemented a Quality Management System and is certified according to ISO-9001 standard in the scope of Production of Calcium Phosphate Nanoparticles by SGS. Our Quality Management System represents a strong commitment to continuous improvement in the process and product development and it is also important for FLUIDINOVA’s strategic orientation supporting the following concepts:
|Be a referenced in the production of nanohydroxyapatite and tricalcium phosphate materials;|
|Be recognized as excellent producer, ensuring full customer satisfaction;|
|Ensure the compliance of all requirements of the Quality Management System and all the applicable legal requirements;|
|Involving all the collaborators in the continuous improvement and efficiency of the quality system.|
NETmix® the Innovative Static Mixer
Patented proprietary technology of FLUIDINOVA (WO2005077508). This technology is a new concept developed for mixing liquids and/or gases with a unique and reproducible control of fluid mixture, features that are extremely important in the control of complex reactions.
Network of chambers interconnected by channels. The innovative structure of NETmix® makes it suitable for setting particular designs of chambers and channels enabling the control of mixing quality, reaction conversion and selectivity. This feature is an advantage of this technology relatively to common reactors where these parameters are difficult to set and control.
The NETmix® technology has specific applications in the organic synthesis of pharmaceutical products, precipitates and polymeric particles with controlled particle size distribution.
|Perfect mixing at micro and macro level|
|Maximization of reaction selectivity|
|Easily linked to additional equipment|
|Easy temperature control|
NETmix® enables the design of new chemical reactors, from micro-reactors to large-scale reactors with application in the production of nanomaterials; polymerization reactions, for promoting a finer control of the molecular weight distributions; precipitation reactions, to obtain a finer manipulation on crystal sizes; in oxidation reactions, allowing the control of the reacting steps in order to achieve an effective control on the selectivity of the desired products; and in highly exothermic catalytic reactions, potentially explosive, permitting an effective and secure control of the reacting temperature during the reactive process.
The NETmix® technology has been successfully applied to the synthesis of calcium phosphate nanoparticles, magnetic and metal organic nanoparticles, metal-organic frameworks, polymeric microcapsules and API (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients) encapsulation.
Talented, passionate and innovative. That’s what we are! FLUIDINOVA wishes to attract highly qualified and motivated people.
