Nanoparticles for Drug Delivery
Nanoparticles have unique properties that are manipulated to create novel solutions, with its most significant contribution in the field of drug delivery. Nanoparticles are usually defined as a particle of matter in the range of 1 – 100 nm.. One of the major fields of nanotechnology research is the application of nanoparticles used for drug delivery, with considerable research and development devoted to this field. Because nanoparticle size and surface properties are critical physical parameters influencing behavior, proper particle size analysis is essential in both research and development, and ultimately in quality control. Dynamic light scattering (DLS) is the most frequented analytical method to perform these measurements.
In this webinar, we will discuss:
- Nanoparticle definitions
- Effect of size on water solubility
- Nanoparticle drugs on the market
- Controlled release qualities
- Doxorubicin examples
- Low concentration measurements
- Online size monitoring
