Micropore is a solution provider in the formulation space to the pharma and biopharma sectors.

Simply put, Micropore gives clients exquisite control over their chemistry, with consequent shortening of timeframes, improvements in yield and product performance while, in some cases, eliminating process steps.

Micropore’s technology

• is formulation agnostic across all nanoparticles formulations.

• is also solvent agnostic, as all materials of construction are 316L stainless steel, giving complete freedom in formulation.

• is capable of seamlessly scaling from an initial 200µL sample to full Part 11 compliant GMP manufacturing at 2,000 Litres/hour…….and anything in between.

• can speed time to market. We have seen a microsphere formulation go from first lab experiment to first engineering batch in 7 months.

• allows a wide variety of sterilisation methods (CIP, SIP, Pressurised hot water, Autoclave out of place). There are no consumables.

• is a very gentle process which runs at <5 Bag; typically 1-2 Bar, thereby preserving the integrity of sensitive materials while simultaneously improving our client’s ESG footfrint.

We work in partnership to help clients all through their formulation journey; from initial scoping and proof of concept through to manufacturing plant design to meet client’s CMC requirements, DQ/IQ/OQ certification and PQ support.

The company is headquartered in the UK and has subsidiaries in the USA and India together with distributors in Australia and Japan.



Our vision of helping to advance Life Sciences research every day, is embodied by providing a unique, holistic range of solutions to make life easier – easily and quickly accessible.

The full scope of your needs is at the centre of our attention.

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.


There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.


Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SAE Media Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.


Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.
