The application of nanoparticles in modern medicine is a rapidly developing field of study. Nanoprecipitation is a common fabrication technique used for encapsulation of both hydrophilic (i.e. having a tendency to mix with, dissolve in, or be wetted by water) and hydrophobic (i.e. tending to repel or fail to mix with water) drugs in nanoparticles. Flash NanoPrecipitation (FNP) provides a simple, rapid and scalable technique to form these drug nanoparticles.

Confined Impinging Jet (CIJ)
The Confined Impinging Jet (CIJ) is the simplest mixer design for FNP and permits mixing of two streams in a scalable and continuous fashion.
Multi Inlet Vortex Mixer (MIVM)
The Multi Inlet Vortex Mixer (MIVM) was also developed to enable up to four different stream inputs while still achieving the rapid micromixing required for uniform particle formation. The MIVM requires a mixer stand to enable uniform depression of the syringes.
