Hempseed oil nanoemulsions for oral delivery applications: Development and best practices

Emerging technologies designed to produce nanoemulsion formulations with improved characteristics, such as emulsion stability and uniform particle size, are becoming more widely adopted, but direct comparisons between methods are lacking.

On May 25, Anton Paar will host Dr. Anubhav Pratap-Singh and Dr. Natalia Sannikova for a live discussion on the recent report, Comparing microfluidics and ultrasonication as formulation methods for developing hempseed oil nanoemulsions for oral delivery applications. The report can be found at this link: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-020-79161-w


Specific topics will include:


   • Study of oil in water nanoemulsions, based on hempseed oil (HSO)

   • Emerging formulation technologies aimed to produce nanoemulsions with improved characteristics, including stability and oral delivery applications

   • Formulation techniques such as ultrasound and microfluidic approaches

   • Further analyses to assess the functionality of prepared formulations:

      o Morphology examination

      o Simulated gastrointestinal release behavior study

      o Transepithelial transport evaluations

      o Toxicity test

 The event will feature a live question and answer session following the presentation to address specific questions.
