Training in DNA-based technologies

Friday, 20. May 2016 to Monday, 30. May 2016

Assistant professor Tanja Petrović (IMMOBIOG) finished her training from 20th May to 30th May 2016 at Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Strasbourg, France. The aim of this training was to learn the different techniques of micro and nano encapsulation of active substances. Under the supervision of prof. Thierry Vandamme microencapsulation of active substance by extrusion-spheronization was done, using microcrystalline cellulose as a carrier. In addition, nanoencapsulation by ultra sound and high pressure emulsification was performed while measurement of nanoparticles size distribution were determined by dynamic light scaterttering technique.
