Separative’s team is happy to be a prize-winner of the competition I-Lab 2016 for its project of High Resolution Flash column intended for research laboratories in medicinal chemistry, using its technology of multicapillary chromatography.

Organized by the Ministry of Research to foster the new business start-up of innovative technologies, this national competition takes place in three stages: an application on file, a local preselection on the basis of a presentation (realized by Ernst and Young), then a national selection by one experts’ jury. 56 start-up were awarded among 347 applications. The assigned grants can reach 450 000 € for the most promising projects and answering one of the 10 big societal challenges defined by the strategic schedule France-Europe 2020.

Held in the Top 10 of the awarded, Separative obtained subsidies of 300 000 € to complete the development of its innovative and extremely successful multicapillary chromatography column.

After the prototypage of a first standard column, the objective is to propose a range of semi–preparatives and preparatives columns for the purification of samples for the Pharmacy in world.
We would like to warmly thank all our supports in this wonderful venture.
