About The NanoAssemblr Platform
The NanoAssemblr Platform uses proprietary microfluidic mixing technology to manufacture nanomedicines. Microfluidics uses micrometer sized channels to manipulate and control fluids. The channel dimensions and architecture of the microfluidic mixer used in the NanoAssemblr platform have been optimized to enable exquisite control over the mixing of the molecular components that self-assemble to form the nanomedicine. Please see the Precision NanoSystems website for an animated overview of the value the NanoAssemblr microfluidics brings to nanomedicine discovery, development and scale-up manufacture (https://www.precisionnanosystems.com/nanoassemblr-platform/)
