Activity description
The 3 top equipments available

Microencapsulation includes all the technologies that allow the coating or entrapment of active ingredients inside individual particles whose size varies from several microns to several millimeters.

The company’s know-how and skills cover more specifically the following technologies:

  • Dripping technologies, allowing the production of “monodispersed” microcapsules with different final structures (solid beads, hydrogel beads, capsules with membrane,…);
  • Emulsification technologies, more specifically in a continuous mode using static mixers, with formation of capsules by gelation, solidification, coacervation, interfacial reticulation, interfacial polymerisation or solvent evaporation;
  • Coating technologies, in fluidized bed or pan coater, using polymer solutions, hot melt materials and dried powders.

Capsulae proposes innovations on these technologies as regards the formulation, the equipment, and the process control. in addition, Capsulæ boasts a wide range of laboratory and pilot equipments that are specifically dedicated to microencapsulation, as well as a set of high-performance tools for analysis and characterization (microbiological and physico-chemical analyses laboratories).
