Controlled Release Society Recommends Our Work on the Website Front Page
This web application was written to facilitate the use of a novel mathematical model, developed in Burgess Laboratory, intended for prediction of the encapsulation efficiency of hydrophilic drugs in small unilamellar liposomes. The reported mathematical model can also be used to compare drug encapsulation efficiencies of liposomes prepared via different methods, and will assist in the development of suitable process analytical technologies to achieve real-time monitoring and control of drug encapsulation during liposome manufacturing for hydrophilic molecules. The model together with the web application will be useful in formulation development to rapidly achieve optimized formulation as well as process monitoring and control stage to ensure product quality and consistency.
