Rapid Synthesis of Liposomes

We study devices and methods to produce liposomes from the solution phase. Two such devices are able to produce liposomes in the fastest time by any method so far

 

  1. Stationary Phase Inerdiffusion in a Syringe-Cuvette assembly  (takes about 6 to 8 hours for a volume of about 0.5 ml of highly concentrated monodisperse large unilamellar vesicles)
  2. Stationary Phase Interdiffusion in in a Capillary (takes about 15 minutes for a volume of about 80 micro l of highly concentrated monodisperse large unilamellar vesicles)
Both the methods can be scaled up trivially by increasing the number of units.
