Case Study: Pharmaceuticals
“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.’’
Customer: Pharmaceutical Sector
As traditional homogenisation techniques give a broad particle size distribution, when manufacturing microcapsules, this means that the payload in each microcapsule will be slightly different. In pharmaceutical applications, each capsules content must be known exactly to prevent, over or under-dosing of the drug.
The Solution and Benefits
Micropore’s patented membrane emulsification technology was used to produce the microspheres to be used in pioneering new drug delivery methods.
Our customer needed a high degree of control in order manage and measure the size of particles. This allowed the optimal size for a microsphere for this application to be found this is essential for the longer term in view of regulatory body requirements.
The speed with which the team could progress using Micropore’s technology was an important factor for the R&D team. Our customer said: “We spent about 18 months on this project and made excellent progress in that time. In 12 months, we progressed from experimental to prototype and are now looking at preclinical trials. That’s an impressive time scale to achieve.”
