NanoStabilizer®-LT is a proprietary all-in-one blend of ingredients necessary to ultrasonically nano-emulsify hydrophobic bioactive extracts (full- and broad-spectrum oils, distillates, isolates, vitamins, essential oils, terpenes, nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals). It comprises food-grade (GRAS) carrier oils, emulsifiers, and preservatives, all tasteless and derived from natural sources.
Lead time to shipping: 2-10 business days.
- Commercially produce nanoemulsions of bioactive extracts or isolates without having to develop formulations and processing procedures.
- Achieve droplet sizes of 10 - 50 nm at bioactive concentrations up to 50 mg/ml, ensuring permanent water-compatibility, translucency and long-term stability.
- Significantly accelerate the onset of action, improve the bioavailability and ensure reproducible dosing.
- Easily sterile-filter to eliminate any microbial or particulate contamination.
Mix your bioactive extract or isolate with NanoStabilizer®-LT, stir the resulting oil phase into distilled water in the process vessel/beaker, and expose to high-intensity ultrasound until the desired droplet size or translucency level is achieved. Detailed instructions can be found in NanoStabilizer®-LT User Guides available for the following ultrasonic processor configurations:
Batch Mode with LSP-600
Batch Mode with BSP-1200
Batch Mode with ISP-3600
Flow-through Mode with LSP-600
Flow-Through Mode with BSP-1200
Flow-Through Mode with ISP-3600
Q1. How much NanoStabilizer®-LT should I use with my extract or isolate?
When making a highly translucent nanoemulsion, we recommend using 5 parts of NanoStabilizer®-LT to 1 part of your bioactive extract or isolate by mass (5:1 ratio). A lower ratio may be used if translucency is not essential. The dependence of droplet size and translucency parameters on the NanoStabilizer®-LT:isolate ratio in a series of 20 mg/ml isolate nanoemulsions is shown below.
Q2. Since the formulation of NanoStabilizer®-LT is proprietary, how can I list the ingredients on my product labels?
A specifications sheet (with a list of NanoStabilizer®-LT ingredients) and a certificate of analysis is provided with purchase. NanoStabilizer®-LT comprises food-grade (GRAS) carrier oils, emulsifiers and preservatives, all tasteless and derived from natural sources.
Q3. Can I purchase NanoStabilizer®-LT if I do not have an Industrial Sonomechanics ultrasonic processor?
Yes, you can. Please keep in mind, however, that NanoStabilizer®-LT was designed to work in conjunction with our high-amplitude Barbell Horn Ultrasonic Technology-based processors. Since third-party technology cannot be expected to establish the combination of processing conditions required for the correct performance of this product, we would not be able to provide any SOPs or otherwise assist you with the process.
Q4. What is the shelf life of NanoStabilizer®-LT and the resulting nanoemulsions?
NanoStabilizer®-LT has the shelf life of 1 year and should be stored at 4 - 10 oC. A correctly prepared translucent nanoemulsion will exhibit permanent kinetic stability against oil-phase separation. To maximize its shelf life, sterilize your nanoemulsion using a 220 nm-pore filter and store it in a dark-glass autoclaved container at 4 - 10 oC.
