Cambridge researchers developing self-healing concrete

30th November 2018

Researchers from the University of Cambridge are developing microcapsules containing ‘healing’ agents – such as exoxy or polyurethane – which can be added to building materials to allow self-repair of small cracks which develop over time.

How do I make PLGA nanoparticles?

11th July 2018

Drug encapsulation with in polymeric particles, such as poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid)  (PLGA), has been common practice for the last 20 years. Until now however, methodologies commonly used to create such particles have been ineffective and wasteful.  Conventional batch methods produce particles and beads with a wide range of diameters in each batch, meaning that the specific properties of the beads may vary significantly across the sample. By contrast, microfluidic technologies enable the production of highly monodisperse particles in a single step, thereby increasing the yield of on-specification bead sizes.
