Polymer nanoparticles are colloidal particles within the size range from 1nm to 1000 nm and have shown great potential for targeted delivery of drug molecules to improve therapeutic efficacy. Initially formulated like (nano) emulsions, a very small droplet consisting of a solvent containing both the active pharmaceutical ingredient and the the polymer is formed.
Polymer Nanoparticles - our High Pressure Homogenizers
Creatng the smallest, most uniform particle sizes - small enough to be sterilized through filtration.
Ultra high pressures to 60,000 psi (4200 bar) and processing from millilitres for Lab scale to excess of 1000 l/hour (264 USG) for production systems.
Repeatable results from Lab R&D projects to production. Easy to scale-up volumes.
Multiple temperature control options - pre-processing and post.
Easy to use, maintain and sterlize. CIP and SIP capability.
Common synthetic polymeric nanoparticles include polyacrylamide, polyacrylate and chitosan.
