Customer: Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel

The research focuses on the pharmaceutical nanomaterials science and drug delivery fields, with special interest in biomaterials science, colloidal chemistry (drug and polymer self-assembly), mucoadhesive drug delivery systems, nanomedicine (drug encapsulation, release and targeting).

Application: Drying polymeric micelles
Polymeric micelles produced in aqueous medium are spray dried with the new Nano Spray Dryer B-90 HP in order to produce stable nanoparticles used in nanopharmaceuticals and drug delivery.

Equipment: Nano Spray Dryer B-90 HP
The Nano Spray Dryer B-90 HP is a gentle solution to produce submicron particles from solutions, nanoemulsions or nanosuspension of sensitive materials. Moreover, the spray drying of preformed nanoparticles (e.g., polymeric micelles) enables the production of nanomaterials of few hundreds of nanometers.

Benefit / Conclusion: New particles in a near future
By using the Nano Spray Dryer B-90 HP, particles can be produced from micellar dispersion with a good productivity. Several other types of nanoparticles will therefore be investigated with this system in the near future.
