Only a small percentage of the thousands of compounds tested during the discovery phase possess the desired activity and are now designated as “hits”.
Pre-clinical Formulation Approaches

A handful of the most promising hits are chosen for modification to improve target specificity, potency, chemical and metabolic stability, water solubility, and other pharmacological parameters

Polymeric Nanoparticle

Before anything is given to humans, safety and efficacy tests are conducted using computerized models, cells, and animals. The NanoAssemblr® Blaze was developed to bridge the gap between nanoparticle discovery and clinical development.


The development of an overall formulation strategy to support in vivo studies should be considered carefully as it can reduce cycle time and resources. This strategy must be comprehensive, encompassing early studies designed to identify and validate drug targets, to long-term toxicology studies and ultimately, to support clinical studies in humans.





Pre-Clinical Phase Solutions
NanoAssemblr Benchtop
During the Pre-Clinical stage, the NanoAssemblr® Benchtop manufactures 1 – 15 mL of nanomedicine per run for continued optimization, preliminary stability studies and in vivo testing in small models.
NanoAssemblr Blaze


The dynamic volume range allows researchers to use the Blaze for in vivo studies in larger models, preclinical toxicology testing, early Chemistry, Manufacturing and Controls (CMC) studies and downstream process development.
