AFA® Process Vessels
AFA Process Vessels enable efficient, high power, and low temperature processing of Formulations and Drug Delivery Systems in AFA Focused-ultrasonicators. Unprecedented control and maintenance of low sample temperatures during processing ensures sensitive API maintains maximum bioactivity during the production of liposome, nanoemulsion, or nanoparticle formulations. Sample temperatures are constantly monitored in real time with in-line temperature sensors.
