A research team that works at a university located in northwestern Poland and specialises in immobilisation and packaging methods, has developed a technology of microencapsulation.
The offered solution enables immobilisation of various active substances such as biologically-active enzymes, living cells etc. Another type of substances that can be immobilised using the technology is functional food additives. The offered microencapsulation technology combines well-established industrial processes with innovative solutions for creating capsules. In the processes of microcapsules production and immobilisation only natural substances are used, so that the technology can be safely implemented in the food and the pharmaceutical industries as well as in the medicine and other branches. The utilisation of various physicochemical methods enables the production of microcapsules with specific properties desired by a partner and making adjustments to his individual needs and requirements.
The scientists would like to see their invention implemented and used in a commercial production. To that end, they are looking for a partner that will acquire the technology, introduce it into his production process and further improve it under the commercial agreement with technical assistance. They are also ready to licence the technology to a partner that will use it to manufacture his product. The scientists, in turn, will be responsible for providing the technical documentation necessary for the technology transfer. They are also ready to lend their expertise in adapting the technology to partners' requirements. If requested, they can also help to develop it further.
