Rochester, NY (November 1, 2018) – Cerion Advanced Materials, Executive Vice President Doug Singer was invited by the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) to discuss important considerations in quality control and how they impact the scale-up and manufacturing of nanomaterials in a webinar titled “Technology Pathways Toward Commercializing Nanotechnology”.

The webinar, which was broadcast live on September 19, 2018, builds on NNI’s Technology Pathways workshop that was held in November last year, and directly supports NNI’s goal of fostering the transfer of new technologies into products for commercial and public benefit.

Singer was joined by Katherine Barton, Laboratory and Production Manager of Nano-C, Inc. and the two engaged in a dialogue about the criticality of and issues surrounding quality control in the production of nanomaterials. NNCO Director, Dr. Lisa Friedersdorf moderated the discussion.

The key takeaways and transcript of the technology pathways webinar are published on the NNI site: https://bit.ly/2OgylYP. During the webinar Singer and Barton concluded that:

  1. In nanomanufacturing: Fail fast.  Learn from your failures, loop back, and fix the problem;
  2. Expect that anywhere from 25 percent to the entire technical team in a small company will play a role in the quality control process; and
  3. Take advantage of the ecosystem in your geographic area: companies, research institutions, and government-supported infrastructure.  Engage the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) for access to environmental, health, and safety resources.

The National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO) holds webinars periodically to share information with the nanotechnology research and development community and the general public. 

About Cerion Advanced Materials

Cerion Advanced Materials develops and manufactures inorganic nanoparticles that enable product performance improvements and/or the introduction of new disruptive products for its customers in the functional coating, thin films, catalyst, printed electronics, additive, therapeutic and antimicrobial industries. The core team spent decades a Kodak where they became experts at creating nanoparticle colloids for photographic film products, and have invested millions to improve and expand upon this core expertise.

Cerion’s points-of-difference fall into two main categories: 

  1. Their ability to precisely engineer nanoparticles to meet their customers specifications and to seamlessly integrate into their systems and; 
  2. The un-matched capability to quickly and cost-effectively scale-up these materials and manufacture them at multi-ton volumes.

While Cerion employs various synthetic methods, their expertise is based on precipitation processes where nanoparticles are grown from the bottom-up through precisely controlled reactions.
