Study Contaminant Removal in Membrane Dialysis Devices with an App
For patients with renal failure, efficient dialysis treatment is vital. One point of focus is designing high-performance dialysis equipment that increases contaminant removal, improving treatments like hemodialysis. To accomplish this, you can study aspects of the hemodialysis process, such as membrane dialysis devices, with numerical modeling apps. These apps, like the one discussed here, enable users to more quickly analyze the effects of different inputs and improve designs.
Designing Effective Transdermal Drug Delivery Patches with Simulation
Transdermal drug delivery (TDD) patches continuously deliver drugs into the body for a certain amount of time. However, the skin is designed to keep out foreign substances, like drugs. To create a TDD patch that successfully bypasses this barrier, simulation can be used to study drug release and absorption into the skin. To analyze this process, Veryst Engineering created a TDD patch model with the COMSOL Multiphysics® software and compared the results to experimental data.
