USE OF FORMAX HIGH-THROUGHPUT PLATFORM TO CREATE A SPECIFIC EMULSION
Daniel H. S. Harvey, Michael J. Egan & Adam J. Kowalski
The Formax high-throughput platform is capable of rapidly mapping out the formulation and process parameters required to produce an array of emulsions with a range of different particle sizes. The specific emulsion in this instance is a stable emulsion with a small droplet size, preferably sub-micron. Using a combination of design of experimental software and high-throughput experimentation the factors required to produce the emulsion with smallest droplet size were identified and verified. Additionally this work produced a template which allows the quick and efficient mapping of process and formulation space to determine for new systems which variables have the greatest impact upon the emulsion produced.
