  • Successful collaboration achieves accurate prediction of microfluidic bead production
    by iga.willmann on 9th June 2020 at 4:15 pm

      Poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) is a polymer with broad utility, often used for the manufacture of highly monodisperse beads for controlled drug release and targeted drug delivery. Using microfluidic chips – such as those from Dolomite Microfluidics – to produce the beads provides the necessary precise regulation of bead size distribution, a factor that is...
