Energy Efficient Mixing of Oil/water emulsions in micro-encapsulation of drugs
A batch homogeniser process can be used for creating biodegradable polymer micro-particles for use in drug delivery systems. However, the mixing involved in this process uses a large amount of energy, the particles produced have a variable size distribution and the method is only capable of low yield. Furthermore, the overall process is time consuming and does not offer control over each step.
NiTech has developed a mixing system capable of overcoming these obstacles. Click here for more information.
