Development of a Novel in-situ Gel Povidone Iodine Ophthalmic Drop for the Treatment of Viral Conjunctivitis
IVIEW develops an ion-sensitive in-situ gel-forming drug delivery system exhibits sol-to-gel phase transitions when instilling into the eye. The effective concentration of povidone iodine is maintained by the equilibrium between solution and the gel bound components resulting in a long lasting anti-viral, antimicrobial, and less irritation effect.
Continuous Polymer Coating of Drug Crystals, Particles and Nanoparticles
A thin polymer coating protects individual drug crystals from adverse environments and allows for controlled drug release. Current methods of producing such coatings are very demanding batch processes. Employing hollow-fiber membranes NJIT developed two easily-scalable techniques for continuous polymer coating of drug crystals/nanoparticles using cooling crystallization or anti-solvent crystallization.
Rapid and Sensitive Pathogen Detection System
The foodborne pathogen detection device will sense for the presence of harmful bacteria in the food that we consume. Companies in the food industry will protect themselves from liability and also protect their customer from food borne illness (food poisoning), which can lead to death depending on pathogen.
