Encapsulation of Active Compounds
Summary:
A Spanish company in the nanotechnology field, has patented two microencapsulation processes which provide straightforward solutions for cosmetics, food and even agro-industrial applications, responding to the increase demanding of microencapsulation technologies by the market. They are flexible and help to improve the cost/performance and better product quality.The company seeks industrial or research partners from the mentioned sectors for technical, research or license cooperation agreements.
Description:
The Spanish company was created in 2001 by a group of entrepreneurs and researchers. It provides customised microencapsulation services based on its own patented technologies, to create emulsions and microparticles with the size, homogeneity, compositional and structural characteristics specified by their clients, and with a final size that can easily be modified from 0.9 µm up to 7000 µm.

The company has a highly qualified in-house R-Y-D department with extensive experience in numerous sectors. The combination of this human work team with the use of a set of highly versatile technologies allows even highly complex projects to be undertaken. The R-Y-D team has experience in:

- Protection and controlled release of fragrances
- Stabilisation of probiotics
- Transformation of liquids into powders
- Encapsulation and stabilisation of emulsions
- Flavourmasking
- Design of drug-release profiles
- Encapsulation of drugs with a high degree of size control
- Mixing of incompatible components
- Development of fluorescent microparticles for diagnostic kits
- Stem cell encapsulation

The active substances with which they work include probiotics, stem cells, drugs, ranging from relatively simple molecules to peptides and proteins, enzymes, oils, such as omega 3, natural extracts or aromas for a wide range of sectors.

The technology is applicable to several sectors such as: agro-food industry, pharmaceutics, cosmetics or biotechnology.

The company looks for partners related to any of these sectors for different types of collaboration:

- Companies, interested in license collaboration agreements
- Industrial partners interested in technical cooperation agreements, in order to adapt the technology to the companies´ needs and the industrial scale up of the technologies
- Research institutes and academia, in order to collaborate with them in the development of new applications of the patented technologies or for the development of new patents.

As result of this collaboration, the company expects to increase its market quote through the access to new clients and markets, contributing to strengthen its innovation capacity.
Advantages and Innovations:
The company uses its own technologies, allowing it to achieve what other techniques cannot: high rates of entrapment and speciality in sensitive substances such as probiotics, living cells and essential oils. Furthermore, it has a pilot plant for experimentation and production of small batches of particles, and currently participates in innovative developments in the areas of functional food, cosmetics and home care and agriculture. The use of this plant could be advantageous for those potential partners interested in carrying out research and development activities in collaboration with the company.

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
The company looks for partners from agro-food industry, pharmaceutics, cosmetics or biotechnology sectors as follows:

- Companies, interested in license collaboration agreements
- Industrial partners interested in technical cooperation agreements, in order to adapt the technology to the companies´ needs and the industrial scale up of the technologies
- Research institutes and academia, in order to collaborate with them in the development of new applications of the patented technologies or for the development of new patents.

It´s also opened to any other kind of collaboration that could be of interest for both parts.

As consequence, the company expects to increase its market quote through the access to new clients and markets, contributing to strengthen its innovation capacity.
