Nanoform

Nanoform is an innovative nanoparticle medicine-enabling company that works together with global Pharma and biotech partners to devise solutions to complex formulation challenges. Nanoform’s multi-patented and scalable Controlled Expansion of Supercritical Solutions (CESS®) process can produce uniform nanoparticles as small as 10nm, facilitating transport even across biological barriers. As particles smaller than 100nm have significantly enhanced surface areas, this can increase drug dissolution rates and improve bioavailability, allowing drugs of poor solubility in the pharmaceutical pipeline to progress to clinical development. CESS® enables lower dosage and safer products to be developed with reduced side-effects and permits combination therapies, which would otherwise be prohibited by the large dosages of either drug. The award-winning technology is also ushering in a new era of ocular, pulmonary and transdermal drug delivery applications, along with enhanced delivery of drug particles across the blood-brain barrier.
