Launch of topical pain relievers using nanotech for sustained delivery

Concept Laboratories is launching MyOmega, supposedly the first line of topical pain relievers using nanotechnology to produce timed-release pain relief. According to the company’s press release : “The secret behind MyOmega(R)’s extended release is a nanosphere-encapsulated cooling system. Each nanosphere within the IcePearls(TM) system has a designated release time. Some nanospheres are activated right away, releasing the cooling complex as soon as MyOmega(R) is applied. Other nanospheres are encapsulated within microspheres, which have barriers of varying thicknesses. When the barriers dissolve, the cooling complex is released. As a result, the cooling sensation is felt anywhere from 20 minutes to six hours following application.

Cypher AFM

Asylum Research launches a new small sample AFM/SPM called Cypher; its main features are summed up on this page. The new AFM will also be presented later this month (November 20-21) at the AFM Forum at University College Dublin (Ireland).
