Simple one-step fabrication
Using Aqdot technology, capsules can be prepared in a one-pot, single-step approach. Simply in a "shrink-wrap" fashion, capsules are ready in minutes.
Multiple on-demand releases
Aqdot technology enables the easy incorporation of a variety of on-demand cargo release mechanisms into the capsules.
High encapsulation efficiency
The one-pot fabrication technique of Aqdot ensures 100% cargo loading efficiency, and the capsule shell chemistry ensures a payload of as high as 99%.
Compatibility with cargo
Aqdot's capsules are able to encapsulate a variety of cargos, and exhibit special biocompability with biological actives, including enzymes and cells.
Ease of functionality incorporation
Aqdot technology allows for easy incorporation of functionality in the capsule material, making them specifically attracted to certain part of the system where capsules are applied.
World-class research team
Aqdot technology is based on the cutting-edge research executed in collaboration between two research groups in the Department of Chemistry, University of Cambridge. The research findings were published in Science.
