Control the release rate by using Precision Particle Fabrication to produce exact, uniform microspheres. Active ingredients and matrix materials are first combined and then processed through the Orbis nozzle to create microspheres of the desired size and porosity.
Use Precision Particle Fabrication technology to expand the realm of release options. Easily surround your active ingredient core inside of a protective shell structure.
- Delay burst by encapsulating liquid (water, oil, etc)
- Tune release by controlling shell thickness
- Combine microcapsules for multiple pulses

- Protect your active ingredient
- Improve delivery to defined sites
Microcapsules with Liquid Cores
Transmitted light confocal microscopy image (left) of microcapsules consisting of a PLG shell and aqueous, fluorescent BSA core created using Orbis' technology. Note that the aqueous core is contained within the shell without leakage (right, scale 25 microns).
Microcapsules with Solid Cores
Scanning electron microscopy images of PCPH shell encapsulation of a PLG core (left). The core is dissolved away (right) using tetrahydrofuran, demonstrating the technology’s capability to fully separate core and shell materials
(scale 25 microns).
- Protect actives requiring solid matrixes
- Design complex release schemes
