Reconstitution

One of the largest applications currently for dry powders is in the reconstituted delivery of medicines.  Here, dry powders are mixed with water-for-injection just prior to patient administration.  ASFD particles greatly aid in this delivery method as their high surface area greatly reduces reconstitution time, enabling next generation, one-step devices (i.e. devices that reconstitute automatically during injection).  Engineered BioPharmaceuticals is currently constructing a plant for the aseptic production of ASFD powders, something required for reconstituted pharmaceuticals.  When completed this line will not only produce powders but also fill them into a closed container – all under an aseptic umbrella.
