BETHLEHEM, PA | Posted on October 7th, 2008

Particle Science's has been a pioneer in nanotechnology. Its staff invented, among other things, Z-COTE, microfine zinc oxide, a product that was sold to BASF in 1999. These pigments are primarily used as sunscreens. Particle Sciences also developed several surface treatments for these and other particles. 'Particle Sciences has been at the cutting edge of fine particle technology for some time. We have a history of developing commercially successful products for ourselves and others,' said Garry Gwozdz, Director of Formulation Services at the company.

The sale is in keeping with Particle Sciences growth plan as it focuses on its pharmaceutical development services. According to Dr. Robert Lee, VP Pharmaceutical Development, 'Particle Sciences started, in 1991, as a topical formulation lab specializing in particulate API's. It has evolved into a leading provider of pharmaceutical development services ranging from preformulation to encapsulation to clinical trial material manufacturing. We remain expert in nano-delivery systems and provide a full suite of formulation and analytical services to our clients.'
