PolySciTech Products In Literature

PLGA from PolySciTech used in development of in-vivo imaging nanoparticles
Near-infrared light (i.e., light at wavelengths between 800 – 2500 nm), not readily visible to the human eye, penetrates tissue with no physiological impact on living organisms (as compared to x-rays which can lead to damage over prolonged exposure). A dye that responds to near-infrared light by fluorescing can be incorporated to image interior structures in a non-invasive manner. Recently, Researchers at University of Strasbourg used PLGA (AP082) from PolySciTech to create dye-labeled nanoparticles for in-vivo imaging applications. This research holds promise for several diagnostic and therapeutic applications. Read More: Sobska, Joanna, Bohdan Andreiuk, Ilya O. Aparin, Andreas Reisch, Wojciech Krezel, and Andrey S. Klymchenko.
