Lipid-Based Nanoparticles Technology Services for Drug Delivery Systems

Lipid-Based Nanoparticles Technology Services for Drug Delivery Systems

Liposomal nanoparticles (LNPs) are a type of drug delivery system with a homogeneous lipid core of lipid vesicles that are widely used for the delivery of drugs such as small molecules and nucleic acid drugs. The lipid composition of liposomal nanoparticles usually includes four types: ionizable lipids (or cationic lipids), auxiliary lipids, cholesterol, and polyethylene glycolized lipids (PEG-lipids). Lipid nanoparticles can be classified according to their structure and drug delivery mechanism: solid lipid nanoparticles, nanostructured lipid carriers, lipid-drug conjugates, and polymeric lipid-hybrid nanoparticles.

The liposome nanoparticle system has outstanding advantages as a drug delivery vehicle, which combines the advantages of liposomes and nanoparticles with the following characteristics:

  • High drug encapsulation rate, adjustable sustained release behavior and good serum stability for a wide range of cell and tissue targeting.
  • The core-shell structure of liposome nanoparticle assemblies allows the core to act as a container for hydrophobic drugs and the shell to protect the drug and achieve a slow release.
  • Liposomal nanoparticles are non-viral carriers that are not immunogenic and do not cause immune reactions in cells, and when wrapped, they can protect gene-based drugs from enzymatic degradation to reach cells and can be used as biological drug carriers.

Preparation Techniques of Lipid-Based Nanoparticles

Thermal homogenization method, cold homogenization method, microemulsion method, microwave-assisted microemulsion method, solvent evaporation method, compound emulsion method, dissolution-diffusion method, solvent injection method, high shear homogeneous ultrasound method, membrane contact method, emulsion supercritical fluid extraction method, coalescence method, phase transition temperature method.
