Dolomite Microfluidics' Drug Encapsulation System offers a complete automated system for polymer micro- and nanoparticle generation.

Dolomite Microfluidics has developed the Drug Encapsulation System to provide scientists with a simple and scalable way of encapsulating drug samples. The automated system for polymer micro- and nanoparticle generation offers ‘plug and play’ encapsulation of drugs into biodegradable polymeric particles, including poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) particles.

According to the company, the process control offered by the system allows reliable and reproducible generation of polymer particles with a narrow size distribution and enables the user to ‘tune’ particle size from 50 nm to 100 μm to suit their application. Dolomite reports that this approach ensures high product purity and uniform API distribution with almost 100% encapsulation efficiency.
