Microsized chitosan-TPP microbeads

Encapsulator B-390 / B-395 Pro: The microbeads using low and high viscous chitosan were produced by prilling by vibration technology

Chitosan is a linear polysaccharide derived from chitin, which can be found abundantly in nature. Under acidic conditions, it is a positively charged polymer capable of cross-linking through ionic gelation with sodium tripolyphosphate (TPP). Thanks to its cross-linking and biocompatible properties, chitosan was extensively studied for drug or nutraceutical delivery system1.
