Lead Vortex Fluidic Device (VFD) researchers at Flinders University led by Professor Colin Raston have successfully demonstrated drug delivery applications of the VFD by facilitating a four-fold improvement in loading the cancer drug carboplatin into carrier materials. In the Adelaide Now press release facilitated by Flinders University we learn that loading of the drug increased from 17% normally to 75% with the VFD. 

Such advances demonstrate the ability of the VFD to provide benefits to a wide range of applications, especially in high-value low-volume applications such as drug development in the pharmaceuticals industry.
