Webinar: Solvent-free production methods for liposomes and lipid nanoparticles
In the latest webinar from Microfluidics, Dr Yvonne Perrie, Professor at Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences, University of Strathclyde, discusses solvent-free production methods for liposomes and lipid nanoparticles.
Discover novel, solvent-free methods for producing lipid-based nanoparticles (liposomes, lipid nanoparticles and solid lipid nanoparticles) using scalable high shear processing technology.
Small molecules, nucleic acids and proteins can be packaged within these lipid based nanoparticles and used for both drug and vaccine delivery.
