Plasma spray is a thermal spray coating process used to produce a high-quality coating by a combination of high temperature, high energy heat source, a relatively inert spraying medium, usually argon, and high particle velocities. This technique can be used for ceramic coatings with desirable properties such as dense, resistant to wear, corrosion & heat, and to most acids, alkalis and solvents.
Types of ceramic coatings: Aluminium oxide, Titanium oxide, Alumina-Titania, Zirconia base and Hydroxyapatite.

Freeze drying is the most suitable drying technique for substances that are non-resistance to high temperature in conventional drying. This technique is applied in pharmaceutical, cosmeceutical, natural product as well as nutritional food & beverage research and industry. It is also a well known technique to preserve the nutrition, composition and quality.
The concept of lyophilization in freeze drying / low temperature drying is about pre-freezing the sample and further eliminating the ice particle while maintaining most of the composition of the pre-frozen sample. The mechanism involved in this process is called sublimation (transition elements in solid form into vapour form without passing through an intermediate liquid phase).
Previously, we have been freeze drying various type of samples such as polymeric and ceramic materials as well as natural product ie. collagen, chitosan, bird’s nest, henna extract, blue pea extract, carrot, lime and others.

Our chemical reactor is a modular design laboratory reactor that function for optimization and simulation of various chemical reactions as well as for mixing and homogenizing processes in a laboratory scale. This system consist of stand system, laboratory stirring unit with power of high torque, anchor stirrer with flow boring, safety shutdown and reactor cover. Other device or apparatus such as dispersing unit, temperature sensors, flow breakers and other equipment can be installed on the free connections of the reactor cover. It is also suitable for vacuum operation and the seals that in contact with the product are made of solvent- respiratory temperature-resistant perfluoroelastomer (FFPM). Infinitely it can be adjustable on the speed. Besides, this reactor is also equipped by integrated torque trend display which is important for the measurement of viscosity changes. Through control actuated by microprocessor, the set speed is capable to be run in constant, even under load.
Cell proliferation is the increase in cell number as a result of cell growth and division. Cell proliferation study gives an informative result on whether a material influence on the cell growth and either cell numbers are increase or decrease with time.
* In vitro toxicity testing is the scientific analysis of the effects of toxic chemical substances on mammalian cells.
* ISO 10993-5:2009; Biological evaluation of medical devices — Part 5: Tests for in vitro cytotoxicity.
* These methods specify the incubation of cultured cells in contact with a device and/or extracts of a device either directly or through diffusion. It is designed to determine the biological response of mammalian cells in vitro using appropriate biological parameters.
