Unique technology expands Entegris? fluid-sensing and control offering.

Entegris, which supplies contamination-control and materials-handling solutions for demanding manufacturing environments, acquired the assets of privately held Jetalon Solutions, a California-based supplier of fluid metrology products, Entegris reported in a press release.

Jetalon Solutions’ metrology and sensor products use refractive-index technology to achieve greater precision in real-time chemical blending, which is of increasing interest with the trend to continuous manufacturing and real-time monitoring. In biopharmaceutical production, these solutions are used in both upstream and downstream processing. Sensors can be used, for example, in real-time, in-line concentration monitoring of media and buffer preparations.
