Optimizing  LNPs for Novel Nanomedicines Optimizing LNPs for Novel Nanomedicines

Lipid nanoparticles (LNPs) have become the forefront of drug & vaccine development and gene therapy. They serve as flexible delivery vehicles and can be tailored to specific applications. The key to optimizing LNPs is fine-tuning the composition, surface properties, and size. Existing technologies lack the ability to offer precise control over the generation of customized LNPs, but the new Automated Nanoparticle (ANP) System offers scientists a flexible, tailored approach to LNP production required for the generation and optimization of drug formulations.
