A new research project (PneumoNP) is aimed at tackling antibiotic resistance in respiratory tract infections via the use of inhalable nanotherapeutic compounds. Funded under the FP7 programme by the European Commission, the 4-year long PneumoNP project brings together top research institutes, universities, clinicians and enterprises from 6 EU member states. This novel collaboration will contribute to answer the call of the World Health Organization (WHO), who recently released an alarming report on the global threat of antibiotic resistance. The project will develop an innovative solution to antibiotic resistance by coupling new antibiotics to inhalable carrier molecules, resulting in more efficient targeting of antibiotics to infection-causing bacteria present in the respiratory tract.

Ingeniatrics, partner of the 7th European Framework programme PneumoNP project, participates in the Kick off Meeting in San Sebastian, Spain on 28th 29th January 2014

PneumoNP’s 11 partners from 6 EU member states meet in San Sebastian, Spain on 28th/29th January 2014. PneumoNP is a European large research project funded under the Seventh Framework Programme (2014-2017) with a budget more than 5.5 M€.

Aiming to diagnose and treat antibiotic resistant pneumonia infections. Each partner has a distinctive role in the project, and brings its own expertise to the group. Ingeniatrics will be responsible for the creation of an optimal aerosol with the previous developed drug formulation with a defined droplet size and size distribution. Ingeniatrics know how in Drug Delivery and microencapsulation of high sensitive active pharmaceutical ingredients(API’s) will be beneficial for the whole development.

The main objective of the project is the development of a therapy and a diagnosis system for the treatment of lung infection (pneumonia). According to most of the international stakeholders from the healthcare sector, resistant Gram-negative bacteria are one of the major global health issues due to unavailable effective treatments. The PneumoNP team will focus its attention on infections caused by Klebsiella pneumoniae.

The application of nanotechnology to medicine always raises concerns among citizens, with good reasons. The incorporation of nanomaterials into the human body sometimes is a subject of reluctance. In PneumoNP all the existing safety and risk assessments will be strictly followed, especially all the recommendations generated by the European Commission. Dialogue about nanomedicine will be initiated with involved citizens (press relations, website, twitter…) through its dissemination activities. Finally, the project aims at showing that nanotherapy based drugs will reduce side effects, produce safer treatments and enable the use of biomolecule based drugs.

Furthermore PneumoNP will develop a new theragnostic system for a rapid identification of the bacteria strain causing the infection, and targeted treatment of the infected area with a selective therapeutic nanosystem.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement No 604434

Ingeniatrics está especializada en el manejo de fluidos, el diseño y la fabricación de nebulizadores utilizados en multitud de áreas.

Son nebulizadores muy valorados en el análisis químico del agua (agua de mar, residuos, procesos, etc.) y otras sustancias por ICP -OES y MP -AES (OneNeb®). Además se utilizan en el tratamiento de agua residual (lixiviados, encurtidos, etc.), refrigeración evaporativa, humidificación y la microencapsulación de microorganismos (Cellena®). Estos nebulizadores son únicos debido a sus tecnologías pantentadas: Flow Focusing® y Flow Blurring®.

Se han desarrollado varios prototipos para la creación de gotas con diámetro inferior a 5 micras. Estos son para una aplicación única que requiere un flujo continuo de gotitas nebulizadas de una química especial que afecta el proceso final. Se han probado otros nebulizadores para estas aplicaciones concretas pero ninguno de ellos ofrece la posibilidad de dosificar la química en un tamaño de partícula muy pequeño en el aire.

Otro prototipo fue desarrollado para la producción de partículas entre 0,8 y 1 mm utilizando suspensiones oleosas viscosas consiguiendo tasas de flujo de líquido en 200Kg por hora. Las partículas son generadas con la tecnología Flow Blurring® en combinación con las fuerzas electro-hidrodinámicas. Cada prototipo se entrega con los informes de control de calidad y una guía de usuario para asegurar la correcta gestión de los operadores finales.

Ingeniatrics está formado por profesionales con experiencia en investigación e ingeniería, dirigido por un equipo gerencial que se identifica y se ha comprometido con los objetivos estratégicos de la compañía, misión y valores.

"Building functional materials for health care and pharmacy from microfluidic principaples and Flow Focusing" The publishing company Elservier has recently published the paper "Building functional materials for health care and pharmacy form microfluidic principles and Flow Focusing",  on the section of Advances Drug Delivery Reviews. As authors:

A.M. Gañán-Calvo, J.M. Montanero, L. Marín-Banderas, M. Flores-Mosquera.


In this review, we aim at establishing a relationship between the fundamentals of the microfluidics technologies used in the Pharmacy field, and the achievements accomplished by those technologies. We describe the main methods for manufacturing micrometer drops, bubbles, and capsules, as well as the corresponding underlying physical mechanisms. In this regard, the review intended to show non-specialist readers the dynamical processes which determine the success of microfluidics techniques. Flow Focusing (FF) is a droplet-based method widely used to produce different types of fluid entities on a continuous basis by applying an extensional coflow. We take this technique as an example to illustrate how microfluidics technologies for drug delivery are progressing from a deep understanding of the physics of fluids involved. Specifically, we describe the limitations of FF, and review novel methods which enhance its stability and robustness. In the last part of this paper, we review some of the accomplishments of microfluidics when it comes to drug manufacturing and delivery. Special attention is paid to the production of the microencapsulated form because this fluidic structure gathers the main functionalities sought for in Pharmacy. We also show how FF has been adapted to satisfy an ample variety of pharmaceutical requirements to date.

TargetFish project counts on Ingeniatrics

New and better vaccines to try to prevent disease outbreaks in farmed fish are the aims of a newly launched €6M research partnership. European aquaculture production provides work for around 65,000 people and has a turnover of € 3 billion. However infectious fish diseases can impact on plans to increase production and in some instances no effective treatments are available. The best method for disease control - both on economical and ethical grounds - is disease prevention by vaccination.

TargetFish brings together leading European research groups that are experts on the fish immune system and enterprises from the Biotech and Veterinary sectors to advance the development of existing (but not sufficient) and new prototype vaccines against socio-economically important viral or bacterial pathogens of Atlantic salmon, rainbow trout, common carp, sea bass, seabream and turbot. To achieve the challenging tasks, the project brings together 30 partners from 13 countries, amount them Ingeniatrics.

The role of Ingeniatrics, represented by our R&D director María Flores, is to participate in the microencapsulation of different fish vaccines for oral or immersion vaccination in alginate derivatives.

TargetFish is a large collaborative project funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development. The estimated duration of the project is from october 2012 to september 2017.
