Our vision

Microcaps evolved from the PhD research of Alessandro Ofner at ETH Zurich in the group of Complex Materials. This research resulted in a disruptive microfluidic technology that offers specific encapsulation solutions from pharmaceutical to cosmetic and food solutions. With this technology, our vision is to bring precise control to your microencapsulated product by providing the world’s first microfluidic platform for industrial applications.
