Double emulsion production made easy : a reliable device

Overview

Double emulsion could be defined as droplet encapsulated within a larger droplet of different immiscible phases. Making double emulsion is a widespread method for many applications. This method shows advantages and potential in many applications such as in food for flavor release or cosmetics for fragrance and flavor release (toothpaste, perfume…), in pharmaceutics for drug delivery ( Protection of API in microcapsules for control drug release) and other.

Whereas double emulsion is a promising method for many applications, technologies to make double emulsion such as batch methods are all suffering from various limitations (low reproducibility, big size distribution…)

Microfluidics which consist of precisely control fluids at micrometric scale is a promising technology for making double emulsion. However, this technology requires microfluidic chips and devices made of specific materials ( mostly hydrophobic such as PDMS or hydrophilic such as Glass ). Physical properties of the materials remains a big limitation for double emulsion because allow generating simple emulsion (w/o, o/w) but it’s become almost impossible to reach double emulsion (w/o/w or o/w/o) without using a chemical coating on the chip which has a lifetime and is not robust enough for long term production.

During this webinar, we are going to present the only device available on the market which allows to easily produce double emulsion with any kind of solution without chemical surface treatments needed.
