Aphios has developed SuperFluids™ (supercritical, near-critical or critical fluids with or without polar cosolvents) technologies and designed specialized equipment for the discovery and manufacturing of natural pharmaceuticals such as the anticancer drugs paclitaxel and bryostatin, nanotechnology drug delivery of proteins, siRNA and hydrophobic small molecules, and the pathogenic safety of human plasma and monoclonal antibodies.
We have also developed SuperFluids™ technologies and designed specialized equipment for microbial cell disruption, crystallization of natural products and lipophilic peptides, and biomass pretreatment for the manufacture of biofuels and biochemicals.
