Luca Rongo, CEO of Xplore, expressed his enthusiasm about the partnership, "We are thrilled to collaborate with Singh Instrument, a synergy that underscores our commitment to remain a leading company in the utilization of state-of-the-art HTE platforms for olefin polymerization. By combining our expertise and resources, we will play a pivotal role in the testing and development of these new generation HTE platforms."
Under the MOU , Xplore will serve as the official showroom for Singh Instrument's cutting-edge P series multi-channel reactor platform, which is based on their P-8 and P-6 reactor modules. Through live demonstrations, Xplore will illuminate the superior capabilities of this platform to prospective customers. In addition, Xplore will offer unparalleled support by becoming the exclusive service and support partner for Singh Instrument's workflows in Europe.
Robbie Sidhu, founder of Singh Instrument, also voiced his optimism about the collaborative venture, "We are looking forward to this promising partnership with Xplore. Their impressive expertise and superior laboratory facilities make them an ideal partner for Singh Instrument. Companies with legacy hardware who already rely on Xplore’s excellent service organization will now have access to a next generation platform, serviced by a company they know and trust.”
This partnership represents a powerful combination of innovation and expertise between two organizations that bring a proven track record in the design and use of high throughput experimentation tools and methods to the development of polyolefin catalysts and processes.
Originally known as HTExplore, it was founded in 2013 as a spin-off from the Laboratory of Stereoselective Polymerizations of the University of Naples, Italy. In 2020, the academic spin-off status ceased, and the company has become 100% privately-owned. Xplore is committed to providing comprehensive scientific and technology services for the development and technical support of high-throughput experimentation workflows in the field of catalytic olefin polymerization.
