Xcelience, Powdersize Partner in Nano-MillingBy
Xcelience, a contract development and manufacturing organization, and Powdersize, a company specializing in particle-size reduction, have added Netzsch Delta Vita media mills, a nanoparticle milling solution, to their capabilities. The addition allows Xcelience to provide a full range of particle-size reduction solutions from milling and micronization through cGMP manufacturing and global clinical supplies, packaging and logistics.
Xcelience had made a structured cash investment in Powdersize in July of this year, adding milling and micronization capabilities. The addition of the Delta Vita complements Powdersize's micronization capability as a primary enabling technology for improving solubility. It provides additional size reduction to nano-scale particles. The Delta Vita is used for wet grinding of batches ranging from 15 mL to approximately 60 L. This technology allows for ample milling energies (or tip speeds) to generate sub 1Âµm particles and stabilize them into a suitably formulated solution.
