Pioneers in Microencapsulation

For decades, Particle Dynamics technology has been applied to an impressive range of products in the pharmaceutical, consumer health, OTC and nutraceutical products industries. We utilize a proprietary process to effectively microencapsulate particles to improve taste, odor, stability or release profile. Our technology is employed to produce a line of our standard products, or we can develop a custom application for you.

Supporting our commercial manufacture is an experienced R&D group with a complete range of equipment and technology that mimics our commercial scale processes. As a result, Particle Dynamics can rapidly take your concept from the lab to full commercial scale.

Based in St. Louis, Missouri, USA, our production facility operates to full pharma GMPs and has been FDA inspected. We operate to US FDA 21 CFR Part 210/211, 110/111, 117 and EU drug certification standards.


Microencapsulation – The Particle Dynamics Difference:

Our technology has distinct advantages over other approaches:

Solvent-free process offers a more pure “clean” solution – no trace solvents

Strong coating permits further processing of particles without rupturing

Superior taste and odor masking of nutritional ingredients

Enhances stability

Produces a granular, free-flowing material that is directly compressible and increases tableting efficiency

Offers good mouthfeel with great dissolution properties

Controlled or delayed release profile enables a wide variety of product delivery options

Enables flavors to be incorporated into the barrier coating
