On April 11, 2018, Cordouan Technologies, XiGo’s exclusive distributor in France, had the pleasure to exhibit our instrumentation and share results from the Acorn Area presented in a poster co-authored with Dr. Ruxandra Gref and her team of researchers. The presentation demonstrated the sensitivity of the Acorn Area to detect the adsorption of drug in porous PLA and MOF carrier particles. These and other results will be the subject of an upcoming paper.
The unique approach of the Area can detect the release of drug from the inside of the particle in real time. Direct measurements of the wetted surface of the porous particle provide new insight into the mechanisms of drug release.
