Company Summary

Ligar Polymers develops Molecularly Imprinted Polymers (MIPs) to filter, extract or detect specific molecules of interest. They can be thought of as ‘industrial antibodies’ as they only bind to one molecular target but operate in a wide range of industrial environments. Our customers are a combination of existing filtration companies and companies with painful contamination problems or valuable extraction opportunities.
