Description:

The electro-hydrodynamic processing, comprising electrospinning and electrospraying processes, is a new technology in the pharma field to produce nanofiber based materials and submicronized particles at room temperature, which is finding an increasing number of applications, especially since it has lately become industrialized and the first GMP and ISO13485 certified facilities began to operate. 

The technology of advanced high throughput electrospinning can produce controlled size fiber-based materials within the micron, submicron and nanoscale, to conform products such as patches for the oral mucosa, vagina and transdermal delivery of amorphous APIs and other bioactives. APIs being released from within such self-adhesive patches have the advantage of localised and efficient delivery as well as fast systemic absorption. Similarly, the scaled electrospraying technology allows for the high throughput fabrication of submicronized non-agglomerated amorphous API´s within micron size excipients, which lead to strongly enhanced solubility and permeability, when built into tablets. 

The workshop will provide a number of highly detailed technical talks, delivered by a number of reputed specialists, introducing the technology and its applications for the controlled delivery of APIs and of other bioactives such as, among others, DHA, EPA, antioxidants, bioactive peptides and probiotics.
