Microtrac MRB

The well-known provider of high-quality analyzers for porous materials MicrotracBEL became part of the VERDER Scientific group in 2019. The merge with Microtrac Inc. and Retsch Technology GmbH has formed Microtrac MRB as a provider of a complete portfolio of particle characterization instruments. The product line for characterization of porous materials includes analyzers for specific surface area based on gas adsorption, pore size measurement and catalyst evaluation. A second focus of MRB’s activities is particle size & shape characterization based on dynamic image analysis and laser light scattering. A variety of analyzers covering a size range from nanometers to millimeters is available.


novoMOF AG focuses on idea-to-product projects to bring MOFs to industrial applications. We partner with our clients to combine their application knowledge of the product with our material expertise on MOFs – from the initial idea, identification of the right MOF, production, prototyping, product launch and beyond. Based in Switzerland, novoMOF is working with global leaders in the energy, environmental, oil&gas and other industrial sectors who leverage MOFs for economically viable products and processes.

novoMOF produces metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) – the next generation of advanced materials for selective separation and filtration.
