Introducing the Nova™

The Nova™ Platform is a modular system that redefines nanoparticle production through the use of Impinged Jet Mixers (IJM).


Easily produce lipid nanoparticles (LNPs), liposomes, polymer NPs, PLGa, and more.

Sustainable Solutions

Nova™ Platform is a cost-effective reusable system with no recurring costs for your research.



Easily add dilution or mixer modules to expand system functionality.

Ease and Reliability

Save protocols, make NPs (0.2 mL to >100 mL) of uniform size (50-150nm), PDI (<0.2), and high encapsulation efficiency (>90%).



Increase production capacity using the same proven mixing principles with the Nova™ Pilot High Throughput (HT) system.

Regulatory Compliant

Comprehensive data management, GMP ready and 21 CFR part 11 compliant.

Effortlessly Transition from Microfluidics to Impinged Jet Mixing

Nova™ Benchtop

Designed for Lipid Nanoparticle R&D and Pre-Clinical Development

Wide sample volume range: easily produce low sample volumes of 200 μL and >100 mL on a single instrument. Easily pool sample runs for larger volumes. 

Add modules as you go: streamline your nanoparticle work flow as needed. The Nova™ BT evolves with you.

Seamless Scaleup with

Nova™ Pilot High Throughput (HT) system




Scale Up, Not Scale Out: The IJM approach allows for greater flow rates and thus LNP production. Reynolds number helps us predict the ideal flow rates for a desired production capacity.

Flexible Technology: Readily increase flow rates by changing the syringe pump modules with continuous pump modules, keeping the same mixing principles from small to large scale.

Optimize and Monitor: Utilize integrated sensors and real-time analytics within the Nova Pilot HT system to continuously monitor critical parameters such as pressure and flow rates. GMP and 21 CFR Part 11 compliant.
