As part of Blacktrace, we’ve been at the forefront of microfluidics and have been selling particle systems for more than a decade. We have a strong heritage in particle engineering and built a fantastic team with expertise in developing a wide range of innovative microfluidic devices and chip fabrication. Our in-house designed and precisely manufactured chips, combined with our innovative platforms, revolutionize the formation of particles when working on the nanoscale; whether it be liposomes, lipid nanoparticles (LNPs), polymer-based nanoparticles, or microparticles, such as hydrogels.


Particle performance depends on:

Particle Size Size:

Targetable particle diameters, consistently achieved using our meticulously engineered systems, ensure your highly monodisperse particles complement your application, from cell encapsulation (microparticles) to molecular entities such as nucleic acids (nanoparticles).

Particle Shape Shape:

Continuous flow methodology provides accurate and reproducible self-assembly processes ensuring a homogeneous shape for any particle, including lipid nanoparticles (LNPs), polymer-based nanoparticles, or microparticles, such as hydrogels.

Particle Structure Structure:

Consistent production of identical particles, with high encapsulation efficiency, allows each particle to operate at its full potential.
