Thijs Mimpen, Product Support Specialist

Thijs Mimpen received his Master of Science in the Biotechnology and Life Sciences from the Technical University in Delft, The Netherlands. He began his career working for a customer. In this position he collaborated closely with on process development and optimization of tangential flow filtration applications. Thijs joined the in September 2015 as a Product Support Specialist. In this new role, Thijs actively supports the sales force in Europe by technically supporting customers and performing trials at customer sites.

Thijs has been instrumental in the development of the European Training Center and developing the training course curriculum.


Founded in 1970, is a global leader in membrane separation technologies for the pharmaceutical, bioprocess, diagnostic and scientific research industries. Based in Los Angeles, we focus on two core technologies, Single-Use Hollow Fiber Tangential Flow Filtration (TFF) and Tubular Membrane Dialysis.

In 1995, initiated production of mixed cellulose ester hollow fiber filters for the purification and concentration of biopharmaceuticals and diagnostic particles. Since then, we have successfully expanded this technology and market reach by introducing a wide range of hollow fiber membrane chemistries and pore sizes for ultrafiltration, nanofiltration and microfiltration. The KrosFlo® branded membrane filters and supporting filtration systems are used in a multitude of up-stream and down-stream applications including point-of use-water filtration, cold sterilization of culture medium, protein purification and concentration, virus removal and concentration, lysate clarification, bioreactor perfusion, whole cell diafiltration, as well as many other specialized separation processes. We strive to advance Tangential Flow Filtration technology by developing novel hollow fiber membrane chemistries. Most recently, we introduced a hydrophilic and low protein binding modified polyethersulfone (mPES) hollow fiber membrane that provides superior flux and higher product recovery.

Our products are represented and sold through our regional offices and a network of distributors worldwide.
