Abstract: Introduction: Spray drying is an extremely well-established technology for the production of micro-particulate powders suited for a variety of drug delivery applications. In recent years, the rise in nanomedicine has placed increased pressure on the existing systems to produce nanoparticles in good yield and with a narrow size distribution. However, the separation and collection of nanoparticles with conventional spray dryer set ups is extremely challenging due to their typical low collection efficiency for fine particles < 2 μm. Currently, nanoparticles have to be agglomerated into larger microparticles, via a two-step approach, in order to collect them in a sizeable amount. However, this method has to contend with the issue of adequate redispersibility of the primary particles to reap the full benefits of nanosizing. Areas covered: An overview on the advances in spray drying technology is provided in this review with particular emphasis on the novel Buchi Nano Spray Dryer B-90. Readers will appreciate the limitations of conventional spray drying technology, understand the mechanisms of the Buchi Nano Spray Dryer B-90, and also learn about the strengths and shortcomings of the system. Expert opinion: The Buchi Nano Spray Dryer B-90 offers a new, simple and alternative approach for the production of nanoparticles suited for a variety of drug delivery applications. © 2011 Informa UK, Ltd.
