micromod

Company

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

Over 25 years of experience
Since 1999

We are 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 product range and development work focus on chemically surface-functionalized and/or magnetizable polymer particles for predominantly biochemical applications. The synthetic strategies designed within the company enable particle production from milliliter to bulk scale quantities depending on application. The wide range of micro and nanoparticle types is reflected in more than 700 catalog items.

The product range and development work focus on chemically surface-functionalized and/or magnetizable polymer particles for predominantly biochemical applications. In-house synthesis concepts in production and sophisticated particle analysis in connection with a modern quality management system are the basis for the high quality standards in our product range. With more than 700 catalog items, we have firmly established ourselves internationally as a reliable manufacturer in the highly specialized market for nano and microparticles.
