NLAB Silica®

NLAB Silica®

Nanologica’s patented technology platform, NLAB Silica®, enables the use of mesoporous silica for tailor-made drug delivery systems for enhanced bioavailability and controlled release. The technology has been applied to many projects in both research and commercial collaborations, validating Nanologica’s concepts of how silica-based drug delivery systems can add value to the pharmaceutical product.

NLAB Silica® particles solves problems in pharmaceutical formulations by  improving solubility, enhancing bioavailability and protecting APIs from degradation.
