Based on Bausch + Lomb's history and experience in loteprednol etabonate innovation over the last two decades, the Company developed LOTEMAX SM, which uses SubMicron (SM) Technology to adhere to the ocular surface and then penetrate key ocular tissues.1,6 The submicron particles in LOTEMAX SM help improve drug exposure into the aqueous humor.1 Similar to LOTEMAX GEL, LOTEMAX SM was formulated with moisturizing ingredients (glycerin and propylene glycol),6 a pH close to that of human tears7 and the lowest preservative percentage in a loteprednol etabonate formulation.2,5,8-12.
Compared to LOTEMAX GEL (loteprednol etabonate ophthalmic gel) 0.5%, LOTEMAX SM delivers a submicron particle size for faster drug dissolution in tears as well as provides two times greater penetration to the aqueous humor, added the company.
Despite the advances made in fabricating synthetic polymer submicron fibers, the development of natural polymer based submicron fibers is still in its infancy in centrifugal spinning.
For submicron and nanometer range target particle sizes, the mill can be operated in HDDM mode which utilizes smaller grinding media (0.25mm to 2mm) and higher agitator shaft speeds (1500-3000 RPM).

Based on this, Tanaka Kikinzoku Kogyo will transfer originally-owned submicron gold particle patterning technology and equipment to MEMS CORE, which will subsequently begin manufacturing pattern prototypes using submicron gold particles and undertaking sealing for MEMS manufacturers on November 1.
With the use of Ultra-Web nanofiber technology, submicron contaminants load on the surface of the filter media instead of dispersing throughout the depth of the filter where there is less area for air to flow.
Herein, we report a simple and straightforward route to prepare submicron titania particles without the use of surfactants or surface modifiers.
It contains submicron liposomal therapeutic units (that contains an aqueous, non-acidic solution of a water-soluble botanical copper-antioxidant complex, and at least one skin penetration-enhancing ingredient) and a solid, semi-solid or liquid color cosmetic vehicle containing at least two cosmetic colorants selected from the group consisting of inorganic pigments, organic colorants, and synthetic or natural pearlescent pigments.
The Model 0002 features interchangeable process bowls (0.5 and 2 liter), Wurster coating inserts for coating powder, seeds, beads and tablets, clear processing bowls for anti-static coating, liquid delivery pump with machine base, vacuum loading, submicron retaining filters, product temperature indication, and sample thief (sleeve and contained).
Reporting that Arium technology produces a matrix of fibers predominately sized under one micron in diameter, CEO Veronica Hagen says, "Arium is a completely new technology platform for the industry that will enable us to meet the market need for increasingly cost-effective fabrics with improved performance at a value proposition unmatched by any other submicron fiber technology"
