3D Printing of Macroporous Beads

Production of macroporous beads
While low production rate and clogging are two common problems in microfluidics, size and size dispersion control at large production scales can be challenging. We developed the Macrofluidics concept as a production alternative combining the best of both worlds.
Encapsulation in macroporous beads
Diffusion and degradation of encapsulated ingredients is a common problem not only in industry but also in food and medical applications. We work in new systems that optimise the delivery of active ingredients.
3D printing of macroporous materials
Additive manufacturing is used in more and more interesting ways due to its flexibility and optimum resource consumption. We explore this new technique to create macroporous materials with controlled morphology and functionality
