In the pharmaceutical industry microencapsulation is often used for drug delivery. By means of controlled and sustained release of the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API), a better therapeutic effect, less side effects and higher patient convenience / compliance is achieved. Other applications are delivery of poorly soluble APIs, taste masking, targeted delivery, improving stability.
EmulTech's process is based on the patented model for encapsulation in microfluidic channels. The model translates material specific parameters and desired outcomes to process conditions. The model greatly reduces process related uncertainty and allows for quick development of the desired particle. This approach ensures high batch-to-batch consistency and reproducibility during scale up.
