Resumen:
Una universidad checa ha diseñado una tecnología para desarrollar maquinaria destinada a la producción de nanopartículas. La novedad reside en la sustitución de las boquillas de nebulización por una unidad rotativa que permite aumentar considerablemente la velocidad de producción y simplificar el funcionamiento y mantenimiento de la máquina y la producción de materiales nanoestructurados mediante secado, como enzimas. La máquina puede adaptarse a diferentes materiales, y las pruebas de producción escalarse a nivel industrial. La universidad está interesada es establecer acuerdos de licencia y cooperación en materia de investigación.

Tittle:
Technology for a fast and gentle production of nanostructured materials
Summary:
A Czech university has designed a technology for the development of a machinery for nanoparticles production. Innovation lies in a replacement of nebulization nozzles with a rotating unit that enables substantial increase in production speed, simplification of operations and machine maintenance and the production of new types of nanostructured materials through drying such as enzymes. The university offers collaboration based on licence agreement and also research cooperation agreement
Description:
In the industry, there are several types of dryers used for the production of nanoparticles. The following drying methods exist - spray drying, pneumatic drying, fluidization, lyophilisation and nebulization. Key parameters differentiating these kinds of devices are: characteristics of entry material, drying temperature, total production capacity of the machine, evaporation capacity, material retention period, operational mode and drying gentleness.

The novel technology has been designed by a Czech university and it combines centrifugal nanomaterial production technology with technologies working with supercritical carbon dioxide.

As for the device being offered it is based on an innovation in the construction of existing nebulization dryers. The innovation lies in replacement of nebulization nozzles with a rotating unit that enables substantial increase in production speed, simplification of operations and machine maintenance and the production of new types of nanostructured materials through drying such as enzymes.

Examples of applications for products produced by carbon dioxide assisted nebulization are:

- Production of nanostructured carriers targeted at delivery and gradual release of biologically active substances such as nutraceuticals or medications
- Encapsulation of probiotic microorganisms
- Gentle drying of biologically active substances
- Production of nanostructured agrochemicals

The new and improved technology combines the advantages of high production rate with gentle drying at laboratory temperature and reduced particle size of the product. The machine is fully adjustable for different materials and production testing and can be scaled up to the industrial level.

The university seeks partners interested in adaptation of technology for specific needs based on a research cooperation agreement and also companies interested in licence agreement. Primarily, we are looking for partners in the biotechnology, food and pharmaceutical sectors.
Advantages and Innovations:
- Replacement of nebulization nozzles with a rotating unit that enables substantial increase in production speed
- Simplification of operations and machine maintenance
- Production of the new types of nanostructured materials through drying (such as enzymes)
- Possibility to dry various thermolabile materials, including various types of biologically active molecules and living microorganisms
- High production rate with gentle drying at room temperature - gentleness comparable with lyophilization
- Reduced particle size of the product
- Very low energy consumption
- Opportunity to develop materials of significantly smaller size, having special features when compared to materials produced with conventional spraying facilities
Stage of Development:
Prototype available for demonstration
IPs:
Patent(s) applied for but not yet granted
CommeR Statunts Regarding IPR Status:
