Welcome to the home of Micropore Technologies, the authoritative source for the development and manufacture of precision micro-capsules, micro-particles and emulsions. Formulation science is challenging because, whilst there are many different approaches, achieving the highest performance from a formulation often requires unsatisfactory compromises.
With Micropore AXF-7 the question of scalability of membrane emulsification is no longer in doubt. The technology has finally come of age and homogenisation is no longer the default option. Precision microcapsules and microparticles can now be delivered at any scale from lab to kilotonne manufacturing.
Peer reviewed papers have long shown that, with more tightly controlled production parameters, membrane emulsification is capable of delivering higher quality formulations with:
Working with Micropore was a very positive experience for us. The speed with which we progressed reflects how user-friendly we found the Micropore equipment.
Recent work by Micropore Technologies has demonstrated that their aseptic membrane-based technology, already used for the formation near mono-dispersed PLGA microspheres, can equally be used as a refined micro-mixer for liposome and lipid nanoparticle production. By enabling the mixing of two miscible liquids together in a controlled manner achieving very narrow size distribution at, or below, room temperature, damage from high temperatures, pressure or shear can effectively be eliminated.
