Celebrating 16 Years Crystal16



In the past 16 years the Crystal16 has become a staple in many chemical and solid-state laboratories, by enabling and accelerating research in fields ranging from pharmaceuticals, fine chemicals, energetic materials, fuels, agrochemical, foods and thermo-responsive materials.

The unrivalled accuracy and control over the crystallization process provided by the device, coupled with our proprietary Transmissivity® technology, have facilitated breakthroughs in research throughout molecular development. This has made the Crystal16 to be the industry standard for fast solubility determinations and is routinely used by many academic and industrial researchers worldwide.

​Understanding complex phenomena such as crystallization requires good theoretical models built using accurate experimental information, obtained through simple, repeatable and robust experiments.

The Crystal16 has become a versatile tool in solid form screening being used in polymorphism, salt and co-crystal screening of API’s to rapidly test a range of conditions and solution-based techniques.  

We are happy to announce that the very first users of the Crystal16 have shared their experience with the Crystal16 on the different topics during the online workshop.

Dr. Ivan Marziano (Pfizer)
“BC16 to AC16: A Journey Through Turbid Times.”

Dr. Olivier Monnier (Sanofi)
"Optimal positioning of Crystal16 apparatus in the development of small molecules."

Prof. Joop ter Horst (University of Rouen)
"Solubilities, Solids & Crystallization Kinetics - 16 Crystal16 applications."

Dr. Sophie Janbon (AstraZeneca)
“An Industrial Journey: Happy Anniversary Crystal16.”

The best examples from the last 16 years of research using the Crystal16 in pharma, the chemical industry and polymer science, as well as abstracts on the methodology of these types of experiments have been collated by the Technobis Crystallization Systems team in an online magazine.

Discover how the Crystal16 can accelerate your crystallization and solid-state research and help your projects succeed!
