The advantage of monodispersity

Monodisperse or uniformly sized microparticles offer various advantages over polydisperse ones. Spherical monodisperse particles, combined with a tightly controlled particle size distribution have a significant positive effect on injectability1, flowability2 and release profiles3. With these three key attributes the delivery and performance of APIs can be enhanced.

ApiBead™ is developed to deliver just that: monodisperse, perfectly shaped spheres with a tuneable controlled particle size distribution at CV<10%:

Scalable & Sustainable

  • With our continuous microfluidic process, we create monodisperse microparticles in the air, free of oils and surfactants.
  • The process uses less toxic solvents (class 3) than conventional processes.
  • Our perfect spheres are produced at jet speed (ml/min), chip-free and a 1000 times faster than conventional microfluidic systems.
  • Production is conducted under strict in-line control, tuneable for particle size, material choice and sphere morphology fit for you API.
  • The process is scalable for both R&D and pre-clinical purposes at g/day and clinical and commercial purposes kg/day with waste minimization and yield optimization in mind.
