In June 1994, the chemist Dr. Joachim Teller and the physicist Fritz Westphal founded micro caps Entwicklungs- und Vertriebs GmbH located in Rostock, since 1999 being well-known as

micromod Partikeltechnologie GmbH.

The micromod Partikeltechnologie GmbH is a technology-oriented company with focus on the development and production of monodisperse micro- and nanoparticles and their coatings. Chemical surface-functionalized and/or magnetizable polymer particles for predominantly biochemical applications take center stage in the portfolio and the development activities. The synthetic strategies designed within the company enable particle production from milliliter to bulk scale quantities depending on application. The broad range of micro- and nanoparticle products is reflected in our comprehensive catalog, which contains over 1000 items.

The major line of products are nanomag® (magnetic polysaccharide particles), micromer® (polystyrene copolymer particles) and sicastar® (silica particles). These particle types are complemented with a variety of biodegradable particles and additional highly specialized particles such as: magnetic BNF-particles (Bionized NanoFerrite), which are thermally blocked at room temperature or IDA-latex particles, which possess a very high binding capacity for trace elements. Dextran based magnetic particles of the perimag® and synomag®-D series feature excellent properties in MRI, MPI and hyperthermia applications. For the separation of nucleic acids, nanomag®-particles are available that combine unique surface properties with a high magneto-mobility. Fluorescent sicastar® and micromer® particles are of particular interest for applications in Life Sciences due to their high fluorescence intensity and variable surface chemistry. The offered particle types are available in a broad range of particle diameters and functionalizations. Selected products can be supplied according to the cGMP requirements in coordination with the customer.

Most recent scientific findings in the area of particle technology are constantly embedded into the ongoing operations to develop customized solutions as a partner in cooperative projects with renowned domestic and foreign research institutions.

A modern quality management according to EN ISO 13485:2016 in combination with a sophisticated particle analysis system allows the micromod Partikeltechnologie GmbH to ensure customers (predominantly producers of diagnostic kits and high-throughput equipment, biotechnology companies and various research institutions) a high quality standard in all product categories.
