Nanoparticle Production Pack[O-MIX-LIPO-PCK] or [O-MIX-PLGANP-PCK]
Complete system for producing nanoparticles in a reproducible manner
A nanoparticle is defined as a particle with dimensions below the micrometer range. Typically, their diameter ranges between a few dozen and a few hundred nanometers. In particular, liposomes are nano-vesicles of spherical shape with a lipid bilayer. They are commonly used as carriers for active pharmaceuticals ingredients.
The Fluigent Nanoparticles Production Pack is a robust and complete system for precise and long-term production of nanoparticles, including liposomes, with high flexibility in the particle size range. The pack includes Fluigent’s LineUP microfluidic pumps and Secoya's RayDrop device – a breakthrough in high-quality particle production technology.
- High precision
Adjustable particle size
Features of the Pack
With this nanoparticle production pack, users have all the components needed to start generating nanoparticles with high monodispersity and high stability.
A protocol is available to assist users in setting up and starting their experiments.
We built the nanoparticle station with the right pressure controllers, microfluidic chips, and valves to give you the greatest possible flexibility in terms of particle size and generation rate.
We can adapt the package to meet your needs (particle size, generation rate).
Developed and manufactured by Secoya
Why use microfluidics for nanoparticle synthesis?
Conventional methods for nanoparticle production rely on bulk protocols such as precipitation, chemical reduction, microemulsions or seeding. While these techniques are easy to handle, an overall lack of control over the particle size and poor batch-to-batch reproducibility make them unsuitable for biomedical applications such as drug development or diagnostics. Microfluidics, the method used in this nanoparticle station, appeared in the 2010s as a powerful tool to overcome these limitations.
Its ability to generate control fluid flows and chemical exchanges in a reproducible manner allows users to produce large quantities of nanoparticles with a precise diameter, excellent monodispersity, and high reproducibility.
