Graham Taylor, co-founder of T&T Scientific, created LipX, a time-saving, single use extrusion device that researchers can use to prepare liposomes for use in a wide range of research applications. Unlike the gold standard device which requires 45-60 minutes to assemble and clean with each use, LipX is ready to use out of the package and does not require the use of harsh chemicals for cleaning. As a result, the extrusion process time is reduced to only a couple of minutes, and the risks of batch to batch contamination are completely eliminated. With researchers performing this process over a million times each year, LipX has potential to make a big impact in the industry.
