Reactor: miniclave steel, Type 3, 100ml
Material: Stainless Steel
Temperature: ~120 °C
McGill University uses the Buchiglas miniclave steel pressure reactor to formulate drug additives (carrier molecules) which can enhance drug delivery. Carrier molecules are formed under high pressure and temperature conditions. Once they form, they can then be added to a drug formulation to speed up the release of the drug as well potentially increase the rate of drug permeation. The miniclave steel has also been used to make catalyst additives for other reactions.
