Thar Technologies, Inc., the only company worldwide providing supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) systems spanning from analytical to preparative to process scale, announced today that it has entered into an agreement to develop SFC applications with the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NULS). Dr. Ilia Brondz, professor of Chemistry, Biotechnology and Food Science at NULS, uses a Thar Technologies analytical SFC Method Station to accomplish this work.

?We are excited to work with such a strong university as the Norwegian University of Life Sciences and an open-minded professor in Dr. Brondz,? said Todd Palcic, Vice President of Thar?s Instruments Division. ?We hope the work that is done in Norway sheds a gleaming light on the SFC technology to others who have hesitated to pursue it,? he added.

SFC applications prevail in industries ranging from petrochemical to food to pharmaceutical. The group is already working on SFC with the latest detectors in an effort to surpass SFC-UV and SFC-MS, most commonly used in pharmaceutical applications today.
