  • Scientists use innovative delivery systems to tailor omega-3 digestion speed Flaxseed oil encapsulated in nanoememulsions displayed a much more rapid digestion than when hydrogel beads(HB) were used, found a recent study published in Food Research International. How rugby injury and ‘fishy burps’ inspired new health drink When Marcus Mollinga was recovering from surgery after a rugby injury, he was encouraged to...
  • Here’s a roundup of news and trends in the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry, gleaned from various industry publications: How Combination Product Manufacturers Improve Their Technology Through Process Scale-Up Eric Resnick, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc., discusses how the introduction of biologic therapies has forced drug delivery manufacturers to take a more...
  • Microfluidics offers technologies to meet the variable and demanding needs for cell disruption, from gentle disruption of cultured mammalian cells to the challenging disruption of yeast and other fungi. The advantages of Microfluidizer processors for cell disruption are hard to ignore. Here are some of the benefits of this high-yield cell lysis technology: Easy to Use and Low Maintenance Customers that use our...
  • Microfluidizers are the ideal equipment for cell disruption. In fact, in previous blog posts we’ve reviewed various cell lysis techniques and the advantages of Microfluidizer technology for cell disruption. In this post, we share our tips for using a Microfluidizer for lysis. Tip #1: Do not over-mix the pre-mix. Using a vortex mixer can entrap air in the cell suspension, which will choke the Microfluidizer. This...
  • Techniques for cell disruption are not all created equal. Results published in the scientific literature show the cell disruption method strongly influences the physical-chemical properties of the disintegrate, such as particle size, disruption efficiency, viscosity and protein release. Here’s an overview of some of the more common cell disruption technologies. You’ll notice a common theme: Microfluidizers provide...
  • Cell-based assays for high throughput screening represent an exciting new frontier in the race to discover and develop tomorrow’s new blockbuster drugs. This paradigm-shifting technology can be used to harness the potential of single mammalian cells, encapsulated with appropriate reagents, to serve as microreactors. When combined with high throughput screening, this allows for the rapid evaluation of unprecedentedly...
  • Cancer is the second-leading cause of mortality worldwide, and the number of annual deaths continues to rise. From 2005 to 2015, for instance, cancer cases rose by 33 percent in a majority of countries. While some of this troubling increase may be attributed to overall growth in population and aging, it’s clear that the need has never been greater for effective chemotherapy drugs and other cancer therapies....
  • For decades, scientists have pursued the production of nanoparticles to enhance the bioavailability and stability of drugs and cosmeceuticals. Owing to their vanishingly small particle sizes, so-called “nanomedicines” possess significantly higher dissolution rates than their macro analogues. This characteristic is especially desirable when the molecule in question suffers from poor water solubility. In recent years...
  • Pharmaceutical industry prognosticators recognize that liposomes will play an increasingly important role in the development of new drugs for the foreseeable future, due to the unique drug-delivery advantages these designer entities offer. With a heterogenous bilayer encapsulating an aqueous interior core, liposomes are ideal vesicles for the delivery of pharmacological payloads consisting of a hydrophilic compound...
  • Since the eradication of smallpox nearly four decades ago, the quest to develop effective vaccines for any number of other diseases has benefitted from significant advances in medical science and technology. In subsequent years, various methods of vaccine delivery have been pioneered. Modern vaccine development goals include improved efficacy, reduced risk, enhanced safety and better stability of vaccines; as well...
