PLGA Microparticle Production Station

Fluigent is an international company which develops, manufactures and supports the most advanced fluid control systems for use in microfluidic and nanofluidic applications.

The PLGA microparticle production station is a robust, high performance solution to generate polymer microparticles in a homogenous and fully controlled manner. The performance brought by the RayDrop droplet generator, with the combination of poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) as an encapsulation polymer and ethyl acetate as a solvent provide a biocompatible solution lowering both hazard risk and precipitation time. Suitable for biological applications, the RayDrop and its station offer a semi-automated solution for one of the most successful drug delivery systems in laboratories and clinics. To solve the current problems of the PLGA microparticles synthesis, droplet based microfluidics appears to be a powerful tool. Droplet control and generation allows highly monodispersed and continuous production as compared to batch emulsion methods.

OxyGEN software extends the devices capabilities with features such as pressure / flow rate graph views, control in real time and protocol automation.
