Micoelectronics Case Study


A manufacturer and leading supplier in the microelectronics industry asked VWR Custom Manufacturing Services to develop an amino acid solution for surface coating and polishing of silicon wafers used in production of microchips.


Having little experience with amino acids or aqueous-based solutions, the manufacturer relied on VWR's knowledge and capabilities to develop a range of solutions with varying compositions for testing and eventual scale-up. In addition, we further supported our customer's need with the development and execution of stability testing for this custom product.


After several weeks of co-development, we determined the optimal formulation and successfully scaled up production which allowed our customer to introduce new products to their core markets.
