Microencapsulation is a complex technique that involves incorporating active compounds – liquids, solids or gases – in tiny protective spheres (microcapsules) having a diameter as small as Ø 0.5 to 10 µm. The microcapsules look like powder to the naked eye. The coating (shell), which is thinner than the width of human hair, creates a barrier, isolating and protecting active compounds from the external environment.
We offer more than just simple microencapsulation. We pioneered programmed-shell microcapsules with controlled and targeted drug-release functions. We programme the microcapsule shells to enable a release on demand – release at the right place, in the right dosage, at the right time, and under certain conditions to address specific needs. Based on polyelectrolyte multi-layered composite microcapsules invented by our CSO, Professor Gleb Sukhorukov, our advanced microencapsulation technology is a game-changer.
