This study investigates and troubleshoots various factors involved in the generation of collagen-based particles, such as volume of solution, temperature, and incubation time for the purposes of a potential colorectal cancer targeting drug vehicle. The particles were generated via loading into a gel mold and show a 20-200 fold decrease in size compared to those created only under chemical means.
