It’s not just another microencapsulation
We bring microencapsulation to the next level. Our microencapsulation technology offers enhanced functionality allowing a controlled and timed-release function allowing active substances to be released at the right place and time.
The alternatives to our microencapsulation technology available on the market include emulsion spray-drying, microemulsification, liposomal and microfluidic microencapsulation.
Spray-drying is one of the most widely used microencapsulation techniques. However, it’s a low-tech, basic solution. Scientifically speaking, it’s not even microencapsulation. Microemulsification, although low-cost, is technologically limited. It does not allow to programme microcapsule shells and enables the microencapsulation of only a limited number of substances.
Microfluidic and liposomal microencapsulation are more advanced alternatives. However, they are expensive, and the production rate is rather low. Also, although liposomal microencapsulation offers some flexibility with regard to the shell design, liposomes are highly unstable, and the choice of substances is limited. While microfluidic technology allows for flexible microcapsule design with programmed shells, it is high-cost, making it difficult to use beyond research purposes.
Our advanced microencapsulation technology combines the best of all the available techniques. From a technological point of view, it’s on par with microfluidics and is in the same range as spray-drying micro-emulsification with regard to production volumes and costs. Our coaxial electrospray technology is the most technologically advanced microencapsulation solution.
Our technology produces real microcapsules, where active ingredients are placed inside tiny spheres (micro/nanoparticles), providing protection from the external environment and allowing controlled release function (ingredients are released at the right place and at the right time).
Such competitive advantages are the result of our long-standing experience and leading position in scientific research.
