With the unique AquaSpec™ Technology, micro-biolytics offers a new class of analytical technology
within liquid solutions. This cutting edge technology is based on middle infrared spectroscopy which
is recognized as the most sensitive optical absorption technique for detecting all molecular details
in lowly concentrated organic compounds (e.g. compared to NIR or UV/VIS). The AquaSpec™ Technology
platform provides fast and powerful tools to detect the state as well as changes of an observed
solution. By means of the fully automated MIRA – Analyzer Series, AquaSpec™ Technology offers
a wide range of applications in pharmaceutical, process analytical, clinical and other analytical fields:
Pharmaceutics – examine stability and formulations studies
The stability of products is an important aspect for the pharmaceutical industry. By AquaSpec™
Technology, aqueous as well as organic solutions can be investigated in the range of minutes without
sample pre-treatment, yielding detailed information about the current state of the measured sample.
In many applications AquaSpec™ Technology is therefore a better choice to HPLC and GC.
Proteomics - identify and characterize proteins
Protein identification, interaction and characterization are the focal points of proteomics interest
especially for the pharmaceutical industry. AquaSpec™ Technology generates detailed information
about data of molecular interactions and conformational changes of proteins in their native environment,
without the need to immobilize or even include a marker to the proteins.
PAT and Manufacturing QC - control quality standards and optimize processes
In PAT, the main challenge is to find out properties and compositions of relevant substances with
highest quality demands. micro-biolytics develops individual AquaSpec™ PAT solutions and provides
overall customer support. AquaSpec™ MIRA Analyzers can be implemented for both, laboratory and
process environment (atline/online) and are in line with the FDA PAT initiative.
Diagnostics - determine diseases by specific patterns
Reliable and fast diagnostics increasingly gain importance for public health. Diagnostic solutions
based on AquaSpec™ Technology benefit from the fact that some diseases generate specific changes
in the metabolic pattern of blood or other body fluids. These characteristic spectroscopic markers
can be used by AquaSpec™ MIRA Analyzers for identification and classification in seconds to minutes.
