This new space will leverage the company's knowledge of complex formulations and drug product manufacturing, accommodating both sterile and non-sterile finished drug products, such as ophthalmics, drug-device combination products, injectables, micro- and nanoparticulate formulations and lyophilized drugs.
The fluorescence study indicated that the pectin coating increased the hydrophilicity of the nanoparticles, which may explain the excellent redispersibility of freeze-dried nanoparticles without any change in nanoparticulate morphology.
"This is novel to the UK, in developing organic waste-derived nanocomposite adsorbents to recover high value cadmium ions to produce nanoparticulate cadmium sulphide for use in thin film technology and photoelectrocatalysis, in treating metal mine water and breaking water, to produce H+ energy."
Recent works highlighted that HRs exist in a dual form, that is, a still molecular form at low dilution and a nanoparticulate form at high dilution, and that remnants of source remedy persist in extremely high dilutions.
