Encapsulation Process Applications: Pharmaceuticals
Left: Non-encapsulated, Right: Encapsulated.
The use of microencapsulation technology provides increased retention of the active ingredient at the site of tumor injection resulting in reduced exposure to healthy tissue.
A broad spectrum of services is offered to the pharmaceutical industry by Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), including:
- Microencapsulation process and formulation development
- Drug delivery
- Drug synthesis
- Analytical methods development and validation
- Clinical trial manufacturing
The Microencapsulation and Nanomaterials Department at SwRI maintains compliance with the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) current Good Laboratory Practices (cGLP) and Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP).
