Nanotechnology, the design, synthesis, characterization and application of material and devices on the nanometre scale, is revolutionizing many technology and industry sectors: vaccines, medicine, energy, food, inks…
Physical, chemical and biological properties at the nanoscale are completely different from properties of bulk matter.
Lead to: Economic losses due to lack of solutions!
The capacity of nanoparticles to carry out their function is dependent on their size as well as size distribution, which are directly related to efficacy and safety (for patients in pharma applications).
Since the behavior of particles at the nanoscale depends highly on these properties, their control is paramount to the entire development and manufacturing process of nanoparticle products.
Pharma industry demands complete control over production processes of their high-quality products that need to comply with stringent regulations and demands, which costs $1 million/day1. They thus require sophisticated, highly efficient Process Analytic Technologies (PAT).
However, there is a lack of such PAT solutions for monitoring particle size and size distribution in the nanoscale regime, hindering nanoparticle applications from reaching full potential.
Spectra Research Corporation (SRC) offers a range of innovative high-quality scientific products and laboratory services to industrial and scientific markets throughout Canada.
Nanoparticles are natural and synthetic particles with a size in the 10-9 m range (1-1,000 nm). Due to their small size they have a large surface area in relation to their volume, conferring them special properties.
Nanoparticles are present in many of the items in our everyday life, such as transparent sunscreens or scratchproof glasses. Of special interest for the pharmaceutical industry, nanoparticles are used under different formulations, such as engineered drug delivery systems targeted to disease cells, reducing damage to healthy ones.
NanoFlowSizer (NFS) is a new non-invasive nanoparticle size analyzer developed by InProcess-LSP, the only one capable of carrying particle size and size distribution measurement for non-solid products inline, at the production flow, with no need to extract or treat a sample.
With the NanoFlowSizer, nanoparticle sizing takes place within 10s, enabling continuous real-time in flow analysis.
The NanoFlowSizer is a new innovative system for continuous, real-time nanoparticle size characterization of colloidal systems, nanosuspensions, nanoemulsions and other dispersed nanoproducts directly in manufacturing processes (inline) or in a laboratory setting (offline).
