In last 15 years, Doxa® has developed an outstanding know-how and expertise in the theoretical basics and applications of Microfluidics Techniques, mainly Coaxial Electrospraying/ Electrospinning and Coaxial CoFlowing which are the core of Doxa® and target both fundamental research as well as commercial products.
The use of the mentioned techniques can lead either to the formation of functional core-shell nanoparticles and nanofibers, which are crucial for a variety of industrial and research applications such as food/agro technology, drug protection/delivery, pharma/veterinary, cosmetics, nanocomposites, catalysis and nanosensors or chemicals among others.
Founder & CEO
Electrospinning / Electrospraying is a one-step method for the production of nanoparticles and nanofibers with low monodispersity ratio, it consists in the formation of a steady coaxial jet of two immiscible liquids by the action of the Electro-Hydrodynamic (EHD) forces. This technique is the best choice to deal with spherical or fibered micro-nanoparticles (simple/hollow/core-shell) having high loading efficiency whose shows a range of release triggers and is compatible with a wide range of active ingredients.
