The significance of the encapsulating
agent lies in its performance as an excellent encapsulant and stabilizer of flavors, vitamins and the like.
Huang's lab is already working on encapsulating
an antioxidant compound found in green tea.
The radiation-resistant EKOR(TM) can maintain its superior encapsulating
properties for hundreds of years in the corrosive chemical and radiological environments encountered in the containment and long-term storage of radwaste.
mitoxantrone in our proprietary liposomes, we hope to demonstrate a safety and efficacy advantage over unencapsulated mitoxantrone when treating cancer and multiple sclerosis in humans.
Unlike conventional radiation-resistant geopolymers, EKOR can maintain its superior encapsulating
properties for hundreds of years in a severe radiation environment.
EKOR is a desirable material for both the long-term isolation and future extraction of radioactive fuel - a method using highly corrosive materials - from which EKOR is also resistant and will maintain its encapsulating
EKOR has been tested to 10 gigarads (10 billion rads) with no degradation - the equivalent of over 900 years encapsulating
The Company's technologies encompass the processes, materials and methods of encapsulating
cells in Gel Microdrops permitting rapid detection and selection using flow cytometry and digital image analysis.
