Custom-Made Products

Our specialized scientists are at the forefront of creating benchmark-quality particle standard products, offering exceptional customization and accelerated turnaround times due to our streamlined communication with R&D experts. From client support to reliability in lead times, we are dedicated to your satisfaction. Applied Microspheres excel in producing polymer nano- and microspheres with extremely precise size distributions. Our unique capability to stabilize multimodal suspensions enhances the longevity and reliability of custom-made particles for demanding applications (up to more than 36 months). This feature is essential for the design of custom-made particle formulations for many demanding applications. Besides, the broadness of the particle size distribution can be adjusted, depending on the product application. Precise concentrations or particle counts can be provided, even at counts lower than 500 per ml. The microspheres can be dyed with a multitude of (fluorescent) dyes and surfaces can be modified for subsequent conjugation with antibodies, or other biomolecules. The dyes are incorporated in the polymer matrix to prevent dye leakage. Different functionalizations, such as surface modification and fluorescent labeling, can be combined, leading to multifunctional particles for special applications. Custom-made products can be manufactured in large batches, which can also be reserved for your individual use. A specially formulated suspension medium ensures long-term stability and supply.

OEM Partnerships

These partnerships are aimed at businesses looking to either add their own branding to existing products from the Applied Microspheres’ catalog (private labeling) or seeking highly customized technical solutions and products that can be integrated in their offerings. The focus is on providing a seamless and flexible service to manufacturers wishing to leverage Applied Microspheres’ advanced particle technology capabilities while still presenting the products or solutions under their brand name or with certain specifications aligned to their project requirements.

Key elements of OEM partnerships with Applied Microspheres:


This goes beyond simple branding. We offer the advantage of tailor-making highly specialized products, such as polymer nano- and microspheres, to fit the precise needs of the OEM client. This can include specific formulations, particle size distributions, surface modifications, dye incorporations, and functionalizations for particular applications.

High Standards

We commit to maintaining the highest levels of quality and precision throughout the process, adhering to international standards, such as ISO/IEC 17025. This ensures that OEM partners can confidently integrate these customized solutions into their offerings, knowing they adhere to rigorous quality benchmarks.

Flexibility in Production

Whether the need is for small batch prototypes or large-scale production runs, we can adjust our manufacturing capabilities to meet the scale needed by our OEM partners. This adaptability is crucial for OEMs who may have variable production requirements.

End-to-End Service

This service encompasses the entire cycle, from the initial consultation, where the specialized needs are discussed and blueprinted, all the way to production completion. This comprehensive approach means OEM partners are supported throughout the development process, ensuring the final product aligns directly with their expectations and project needs.

Strategic Collaboration

The emphasis on collaboration signifies a partnership approach rather than a simple client-vendor relationship. We view our OEM partnerships as strategic, aiming to build long-term relationships that benefit both parties through innovation, shared expertise, and mutual growth.
