Location: Biomaterials Lab
Responsible: João Paulo Borges (ext. 10622)
A coaxial bead generator to produce small polymer beads (microspheres and microcapsules) in a controllable manner. The basic principle is the use of a coaxial air stream to pull droplets from a needle tip into a gelling bath.
The system is composed of:
- Flow control unit consisting of pressure reducer.
- Stainless steel lab support.
- Encapsulation unit VAR J1 including an adapter and a sterile filter for air.
- PET Support for syringe pump.
- Syringe pump KDS Model 100 KDS Scientific.
