MIPSolutions, Inc. (MSOL.OB) Reduces Time and Expense Associated with Precious Metal Extraction

Wednesday, May 7th, 2008

MIPSolutions, Inc. (MSOL.OB) has recently discovered a significant advancement in the area of molecular imprinting at their laboratories on the University of Utah. They found that Molecularly Imprinted Ionomer (MII) beads imprinted to retain silver could also retain gold while excluding all other metals. The application of this discovery translates to a large capital expense savings, a reduced development time, and a streamlined field-use plan.

Glen Southard, Chief Science Office of MIPSolutions, stated, “These serendipitous results greatly simplify our R&D plans for precious metals while significantly reducing costs The ability to use the same MII beads to isolate two different precious metals will save significant amounts of capital expense and development time.”

Additionally, the laboratory at the University of Utah recently implemented a Schlenk system to improve the quality control and the purity level of the MII beads and feedstock. The Schlenk system is used primarily to handle inert gases. The MIPSolutions laboratory combines this system with a vacuum system to control oxygen content, humidity, cleanliness, and the presence of volatile organic compounds during chemical reaction tests.

MIPSolutions is a company focused on the development of technology involved with capturing target molecules in the mining, environmental, water and medical fields.

MIP Solutions, Inc. (MSOL.OB) – Making Pollutive Mining Processes Better for the Environment

Tuesday, May 6th, 2008

In the mining industry, the costs associated with handling contamination (otherwise known as environmental remediation efforts) during the extraction process can be staggering. MIP Solutions offers relief in that area, through its patented ‘molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP)’ technology. Basically, this patented process enables the targeting and capture of specific molecules in hazardous contaminants and/or valuable metals, and then the release and recycling of these end products. This allows processed material to be reused, recycled or sold, turning potential environmental liabilities into profits.

The process was developed in part by scientist Glen Southard at The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. Dr. Southard is a founding member of the MIP Solutions’ board of directors, helping to form the company after having obtained exclusive commercial rights for the MIP process.

Dr. Glen Southard graduated from the University of Michigan in 1998, with a Ph.D in inorganic chemistry. He was instrumental in the pioneering of molecularly imprinted polymer technology and realizing its potential for commercial application. Dr. Southard currently acts as MIP Solutions’ Director of Technology.

MIP enjoys the benefits of a shrewd financial team as well. President Jeffery Lamberson was a successful financial advisor from 1990 to 2001, at which time he founded JML Consulting, through which he advised both public and private companies. He is a founding shareholder of MIP Solutions, and took the role of president in 2007.

The Secretary/Treasurer of MIP is another financial advisor-turned-director. Edward Hunton joined Jeff Lamberson at JML Consulting in 2002, and subsequently became another founding shareholder of MIP Solutions.

MIP Solutions, Inc. is on the fast-track to revolutionizing the filtration and mineral extraction markets. According to Heather Curran, technology and marketing manager at The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, “There are tremendous possibilities for molecularly imprinted polymers that are attracting a lot of attention. We are looking for commercial partners with a clear focus, strong leadership and commitment. MIP Solutions is one of those companies.”

MIPSolutions, Inc. (MSOL.OB) – Two birds with One Molecular Stone

Thursday, May 1st, 2008

Investors sure like buzzwords, and we all know the common ones. But when someone is evaluating a company for the purpose of investing in them, buzzwords don’t hold a candle to the old fashioned fundamentals such as demand, growth opportunities, profit margins, market share, and proprietary technologies.

The most desirable of the common fundamentals hinges on need (demand) and growth opportunity. This is where MIPSolutions comes in with a coup in both columns. MIPSolutions, which trades under the symbol MSOL, is focused on the development of technologies that can be deployed in the mining, environmental, medical, and potable water markets. Granted this range seems sweeping but, considering how their technology works, it will likely find its way into an even broader array of applications. Their technology utilizes a process that can selectively capture targeted molecules out of a solution, which (after being isolated) can be released and disposed of or concentrated into a pure and saleable product.

Their molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) technology has actually given the company the ability to turn industrial wastes into a profit producing salable product. It’s this ability – the ability to actually capture molecules and ions out of a solution and then “release” those molecules upon demand – which makes MIPSolutions so attractive.

Consider the acid bath of a gold mining operation. That acid wash contains gold, but until now there hasn’t been an effective way of getting it out of the solution. MSOL’s technology makes this a profitable reality now. Likewise, the wastewater overflow from a silver mine contains billions of silver molecules, but again there was no effective way to recover them.

Consider a water treatment plant, where you can accomplish two feats at once; first, taking heavy metals such as mercury or lead out of the systems drinking water, and second, concentrating those metals for resale back to the industry. Imagine an environmental spill, but instead of simply cleaning up the area, you now have the area clean and the pollutants are collected and concentrated for resale.

It’s that “one – two” punch that makes MSOL attractive as a growth company. It’s very rare that you can address two issues with the same product, yet their MIP technology allows them to do so, and their technology is supported by a Licensed Agreement with The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory and their own Intellectual Property.

MIPSolutions is a unique company with a unique product that is virtually limitless in the uses that will be found for this exciting technology. Aggressive investors need to keep a keen eye on this company for certain.

MIPSolutions Inc. (MSOL.OB) – Isolating Molecules for Profits

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

The most amazing things happen when our bodies are invaded by an intruder, whether it’s a virus or a bacterium. Our body sends specialized cells to “envelope” the virus and then bring a “molded form” of that invader back to the lymph system, where our immune system can create cells patterned from the molds that are designed to go “lock onto” the surface of the virus and render them helpless. It’s the “shape”, or more precisely the contour of the surface of the bacteria or virus, that our immune system can identify, isolate and ultimately render harmless.

MIPSolutions, which trades under the symbol MSOL, is using a technology that’s stunningly similar to the way our immune system works, but they are employing it in a much different way. MIPSolutions is focused on the development of technologies to be deployed in the mining, environmental, medical, and potable water markets. Their technology is supported by a License Agreement with The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory and their own intellectual property. This technology incorporates a process that selectively captures target molecules which, after being isolated, can be released and disposed of or concentrated into a pure and salable product.

The magic behind MSOL’s approach is their molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) technology. This unique technology targets specific molecules and ions, such as hazardous contaminants and/or valuable commodity metals, then captures them though a proprietary process quite similar in approach to the way our immune system “makes a mold” of an invader.

By using the MIP technology, molecules and ions of a specific toxin, for instance, could be “molded”, and then introduced into a solution where it would “lock on” to all of those specific toxins. The polymer is then “unlocked” from the toxin and used again and again. If (and when) enough of the specific toxin – say arsenic – is captured, it can actually be a salable industrial product. Thus the system allows environmental liabilities to be converted into commercial products. Imagine taking every molecule of mercury out of our drinking water, and yet producing a valuable, salable, industrial product while doing so.

This system of specific targeting of desirable molecules and ions opens up a whole new world of possibilities, ranging from mining to medical, industrial waste to water treatment, and beyond. The possibilities are limitless, and the opportunities enormous.
