FACILITES AT NJIT

Center facilities at NJIT comprise of the 1,500 sq. ft. of laboratory space with full ventilation and wet lab facilities for housing novel particle processing instruments. The main space is dedicated to Test Bed 2, a closed-loop continuous oral film manufacturing facility that focuses on thin-film drug delivery systems that offer many advantages such as ease of delivery and patient compliance. Research focuses on techniques for forming precisely controlled release profiles that exploit particle engineering for direct incorporation of API particles into three-dimensional edible substrates which are about 100 microns thick.

 

In addition, NJIT partner faculties have access to the New Jersey Center for Engineered Particulates (NJCEP) laboratories, the Particle Engineering Laboratory as well as NJIT’s Material Characterization Laboratory (MCL). 

 

Processing and testing equipment at the PI’s NJCEP includes SEA inverse gas chromatography (IGC), various dissolution testers, disintegration tester, Rodos/Helos dry powder sizer, Delsa Nano C particle size and zeta potential analyzer, several powder characterization equipment for powder flowability measurements, Carver press, fluid energy mill, magnetically assisted impaction coater, a comil high-speed delumping system, V-blender, near infrared spectrometer, a rotating fluidized bed coater, and a Hosakawa Micron Mechanofusion device, Netzsch wet stirred media mill, Procept spray dryer, Brookfield viscometer, Mettler Toledo thermogravimetric analyzer and polymer differential scanning calorimeter, Coulter LS13320 particle size analyzer, Sigma force tensiometer, and a Karl Fisher titrator for moisture content measurements.

 

MCL is a common facility located in the same building with the PI’s laboratory, which makes it convenient to use. MCL includes scanning electron microscope with electron dispersive X-ray spectroscope (SEM-EDS), atomic force microscopy (AFM), Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) surface area analyzer, X-ray diffractometer, high pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC), and Fourier transform infrared spectrophotometer (FTIR). Additionally PI also has no-fee access to EZ Raman coupled to a near-infrared laser emitting at 785 nm and a goniometer with a high speed camera.
