“World’s First Universal FID for LC” among five finalists selected for the Pharma award category

Eden Prairie, MN, September 16, 2020 – The Institution of Chemical Engin.eers (IChemE) has named Activated Research Company’s (ARC) Solvere™ as a finalist in the Pharma category for the 2020 IChemE Global Awards. The IChemE Global Awards celebrate chemical, process, and biochemical engineering excellence and are considered one of the world’s most prestigious chemical engineering awards. The Pharma category recognizes the best project, process, or product to demonstrate chemical engineering excellence in the pharmaceutical sector. The winners of the IChemE Global Awards will be announced in a series of webinars in November. A full list of finalists is available online.

ARC’s submission, “World’s First Universal FID for LC,” highlights the Solvere™ Carbon Selective Detector for liquid chromatography (LC). The Solvere™ is an LC detector that produces a linear response to all non-volatile organic compounds using ARC’s expertise in catalysis and microreactor design, bringing Flame Ionization Detection (FID) to LC. The Solvere™ has the potential to positively impact many industries and applications, including drug development in pharmaceuticals and biopharmaceuticals, fuels, chemicals, renewables, food, flavors, and more.

“ARC has been working hard on the Solvere and are excited to be recognized for our innovation through the IChemE Global Awards,” said Andrew Jones, Chief Executive Officer of ARC. “Analytical scientists in pharmaceutical, food, and chemical industries have been asking for a detector with a universal and uniform response for many years now, so we’re very happy to be able to meet their needs.”
