Single crystal formation in core-shell capsules (ChemComm Oct.23)

Imagine, that you can easily produce solid microcapsules acting as independent crystallization vessels for both small and macromolecular molecules. Even more, imagine their remarkable stability allows you to handle those microcapsules and transport them without any limitations or constraints.

This is exactly what has been demonstrated by our team in this new publication entitled: “Single crystal formation in core-shell capsules” (ChemComm Oct.23). A unique process made possible only with Secoya’s Raydrop® innovative device.

BREAKING NEWS: Secoya Technologies and ULB achieved a patent milestone in India.

 This momentous achievement allows Secoya Technologies to explore and expand into new markets.

Secoya will be attending Formulation & Delivery 2023 (25 – 26 May) | London, UK to present Crystallization Technology

Our particle engineering experts will be in London end of May with other leading experts in pharmaceutical science to present Secoya’s Crystallization Technology (SCT) during the Formulation and Delivery addressing the critical strategic advances and technical innovation in formulation, drug delivery and drug product development. Also, attending the Formulation and Delivery Congress? Stop by our booth (#17) to discover our unique technology that enables a fast and easy scale-up of the crystallization process thanks to tight control of specific parameters such as particle size or distribution and that remain the same from lab to production scale.


SCT Family: equipments from lab to industrial scale


From the laboratory setup to the industrial-scale equipment, Secoya Technology has developed a full range of products that use the same parameters set all along the scale-up process:


This bench equipment has everything to make your life easy for fast crystallization screening. The batch type approach allows fast screening whilst assuring low product consumption.

Discover the SCT-LAB


SCT-PILOT unit allows to fully explore the design space of a crystallization process, performing controlled long-term runs on one single reactor on the same experimental conditions as the SCT-LAB equipment.

Discover SCT-PILOT


The cGMP SCT-ICE unit is designed for easy access and exchange of modules, depending on the customers needs. Versatile, it enables the production of different compounds by simply exchanging the modules in between production runs.

About the Secoya Crystallization Technology:


Unlike any alternative process, the Secoya crystallization technology is based on the precise control of spontaneous nucleation through the use of millifluidic tubular reactors upon cooling and different antisolvent addition possibilities. Using such capillaries, any parameter influencing the nucleation is ideally optimized and controlled.

Secoya’s crystallization technology is unique, enabling crystallization of molecules in a single process step avoiding difficult work-up when performed with conventional batch systems.

Secoya Technologies raised €1M to commercialize its next-gen microfluidic equipment

We are delighted to announce the completion of our fundraising for an amount of €1million.

Bertrand Loriers, CEO commented: “This is a new milestone for Secoya. It will allow us to move to a new level of growth while we have a better knowledge of our customers and potential markets. These resources will indeed be allocated in a relevant way to our commercial deployment and to the operational reinforcement required to support our development. We seize the opportunity to thank our shareholders for trusting us.”

With a board of industry veterans, including former Delphi Genetics CEO Cédric Szpirer, Univercells co-founder Jose Castillo, Jean-Marie Solvay, and Stéphanie Hoffmann-Gendebien, Secoya already counts several major pharma companies among its clients in Europe and is expanding to the US.

Secoya Technologies announces the coming release of the InstaDrop

All the team is thrilled to announce in the coming weeks the release of the 𝗜𝗻𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗗𝗥𝗢𝗣, the most versatile instrument to set up precise, repeatable and cost-effective API encapsulation processes.

Broadly used in the pharmaceutical industry, encapsulation of active ingredients in microparticles allows to improve their delivery and absorption. Nevertheless, not all solutions guarantee a high control of the particle size Aand a robust long-run production process.

By its conception, the 𝗜𝗻𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗗𝗥𝗢𝗣 allows the easy control of flow and particle size. And as it includes our 𝗥𝗮𝘆𝗱𝗿𝗼𝗽® technology, the 𝗜𝗻𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗗𝗥𝗢𝗣 is perfectly suited for bead and capsule microencapsulation, preformulation screening and small batch production.

Secoya signs a collaboration contract with a top 5 pharma


We are pleased to announce that Secoya Technologies has signed an important collaboration contract with a world top 5 pharmaceutical company. The collaboration focuses on the joint use of intensified chemical synthesis and pervaporation technologies developed by Secoya and aims to develop a prototype that fits into the client’s production process.

Worldwide distribution of the droplet generator RayDrop by Fluigent


On 28Th January 2020, Fluigent and Secoya Technologies signed an exclusive distribution agreement under which Fluigent is responsible for the marketing and the sales of the RayDrop®, an innovative technology of Secoya dedicated to the production of droplets or particles for multiple applications. More information on the RayDrop on www.fluigent.com.
