Microspheres

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.


Microcapsules

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

Matrix-based Microspheres

  • Protect your active ingredient
  • Improve delivery to defined sites

Microcapsules with Liquid Cores

Microcapsules with Solid Cores

  • Protect actives requiring solid matrices
  • Design complex release schemes
