Company Our Mission

SMART SCIENTIFIC ANALYSIS

Our mission is to provide the best solutions to characterize concentrated dispersions (emulsions, suspensions, foams), in terms of stability and rheology, for different application fields such as Pharmaceutical, Cosmetics, Food, Oil & Petroleum, Electronics…

Our instrument ranges use innovative optical measurements based on Multiple Light Scattering and Microfluidics. We have developed patented technologies to characterize concentrated dispersions without sample preparation (no dilution, non-intrusive method).

Today we offer 3 ranges of product

  • Stability analysis of concentrated dispersions
  • Microrheology analysis of soft materials, for coatings drying, bulk microrheology or thermal analysis
  • Microfluidic measurement of the viscosity with a confined flow system

SOME KEY NUMBERS

  • Market leader in dispersion stability (emulsions, suspensions, foams)
  • 2,000+ R&D labs using our instruments
  • 2,000+ scientific publications using our instruments
  • 700+ patents referring to our instruments
  • 30% of the top 1000 worldwide companies are Formulaction customers

Keep a Pioneer spirit

1994: First company to launch a stability analyser of concentrated dispersions (multiple light scattering in static mode).

2009: First company to launch a ready-to-use microrheology instrument (multiple light scattering in dynamic mode).

2016: Launching of a new innovative technique, combining microfluidics and optics to measure flow curves.
