Microfluidic technology: the next-generation drug discovery tool

21 September 2015 | By ,

Microfluidic miniaturisation, or the so-called ‘lab-on-a-chip’ concept, now encroaches on the fields of biology, medicine and pharmacology, and the nature of microfluidic technology (small volumes and high-throughput integration of fluid connections) means that it is outperforming conventional bench work. There has been an incredible need for microfluidic technology in the…

Formation of nano- and micro-scale drug delivery systems using microfluidic technology

17 October 2014 | By , ,

The recent developments in microfluidic technology have provided an effective microreactor platform for the production of a range of pharmaceutically related materials in both nano- and micro-scale. This can be attributed to the unique characteristics that microfluidic-based reactors offer in terms of controllability and uniformity of the material characteristics, compared…
