Inside the magazine
Antonio Costa discusses the use of lipid nanoparticles in the modern drug delivery industry and introduces the DIANT system for the continuous processing of nanoparticles with integrated process analytical technology, which can provide the quality required for these injectable, complex formulations.
Napoleon Monroe considers the impact of the changing technological landscape on how industrialisation in the healthcare industry is evolving, with reference to the idea of “patients as consumers” and how the relationship between consumers, information and industry has evolved in other sectors, such as tech and retail – and how big players in those sectors are looking to move into and disrupt healthcare.
Hiroki Hasegawa and Tomohiro Suzuki discuss the advantages of OXYCAPT™ multilayer plastic vial and syringe, which combine the benefits of cyclo-olefin polymer with excellent oxygen and UV barrier properties. In particular, the authors focus on recent studies that highlight OXYCAPT’s very low levels of extractables.
