At BOC Sciences, we develop and produce liposome products for scientific and technical applications.
We are able to design a variety of liposome products containing the most complex compounds. Our scientists can customize liposomes of any size and concentration in any volume to meet your different needs.
Different Techniques for Liposome Preparation
- Bulk Methods
The first group includes methods based on swelling of the pre-dried pre-tissue lipid membranes (i.e. fluid replacement methods).
The second group includes the following methods:
- A co-solvent in which lipids are soluble
- Other "amphiphiles" forming non-double layers
- Specific ionic substances that affect the aggregation of lipid supramolecules
- Microfluidic Methods
Microfluidic methods for the production of liposomes include:
- Electroformation and hydration
- Pulse spray
- Dual emulsion templating
- Ice drop hydration
- Transient film spray
- Droplet emulsion transfer
- Hydrodynamic focusing.

Advantages of Using Microfluidics
Microfluidic technology can improve the production control of the physical properties of lipids/liposomes, especially in terms of small average size, narrow size distribution, and lamellarity.
|High monodispersity||Provide a method for producing liposomes with a uniform size.|
|Rapid research and technical optimization||Parameters such as flow rate, droplet size, temperature, mixing parameters, surface properties and order of addition can be changed easily.|
|Directly expand production scale||The results and experimental conditions determined during the research and analysis process can be effectively scaled up to achieve mass production.|
- Unique manufacturing process
