Capsulated Systems Inc.
Microencapsulation R&D and Manufacturing
Capsulated Systems Inc. develops microencapsulated materials according to customers' criteria. In the Ithaca location, the company develops encapsulated pharmaceuticals, specifically long-term local anesthetic. This product eliminates the need for, and the side effects of, general anesthetics.
Cornell’s College of Veterinary Medicine has provided critical testing for product development. In addition, the Cornell Center for Materials Research and Cornell nanobiotechnology experts are working with the company to develop new microcapsule wall chemistry. Cornell's electron microscopy facilities and environmental safety resources have helped the company to evaluate capsules and to handle hazardous chemicals.
