Latest News from PSL

A Brief History of Microspheres

September 15th, 2022|

Where did the use microspheres originate? Microscopic glass beads produced in New York in 1914 are perhaps the earliest examples. By 1922, they were even used to produce movie screen coatings. Today, microspheres offer numerous functional advantages for biopharmaceuticals. For example, they are an extremely versatile solution for novel drug delivery systems.

How A Vacuum Tray Dryer Works

July 25th, 2022|

Vacuum drying methods are a mainstay in chemical process industries (CPI), allowing sensitive materials to be dried without inhibiting critical properties. Any loss of quality across drug pipelines can naturally lead to wasted resources and higher costs. Hence the ubiquity of vacuum drying ovens in pharmaceutical labs, pilot plants, and commercial-scale labs.
