High shear energy technologies ensure control of particle size, as well as produce fast, scalable, consistent batches of vaccines and vaccine adjuvants that perform as expected.
Newton, MA (PRWEB) January 19, 2012
Microfluidics and Quadro Engineering today announced that they will be presenting a free webinar on vaccine development using high shear energy technologies. The webinar will take place live on Thursday, February 2, at 10:00 AM ET and again (live) at 2:00 PM.
- Register for the 10:00 am ET webinar here.
- Register for the 2:00 pm ET webinar here.
- Adjust for global time zones here.
The webinar, presented by Thomai “Mimi” Panagiotou, PhD., Microfluidics Chief Technology Officer and Wilf Sangüesa, P.Eng., Liquids Product Manager, Quadro Engineering, will offer data that demonstrates how researchers can achieve micron, submicron and nanoparticle size reductions by using innovative, single pass, high shear energy technologies. These types of high shear methodologies improve vaccine-related emulsions, nanoemulsions, nanosuspensions, slurries and cell disruption.
“High shear energy technologies ensure control of particle size, as well as produce fast, scalable, consistent batches of vaccines and vaccine adjuvants that perform as expected,” said Dr. Panagiotou “In addition to demonstrating how prepared products are more bio-available and their production more efficient, the webinar will also discuss how high shear technologies reduce capital investment, manufacturing and maintenance costs.”
Webinar attendees will learn more about:
▪ Advancements in cell disruption and wet milling techniques for nanoprocessing of vaccine preparation
▪ Scaling up for rapid production
▪ Ensuring repeatable results at high production volumes
▪ Reducing cleaning times and improving safety through steam-in-place and clean-in-place options
▪ Improving ROI from efficiency gains and overall cost savings
Microfluidics and Quadro Engineering will be presenting webinars throughout 2012. These will include:
▪ Green Technologies - March
▪ Powder Compaction - April
▪ Challenging Environments - May
▪ Nutraceuticals – September
▪ Emulsions - October
▪ Chemical Production – November
