Ingeniatrics, a Seville, Spain-based technology company with over 50 patents and applications in Flow Focusing and Flow Blurring micro and nanoscale production technologies of aerosols, particles, emulsions and microencapsulation, has raised €1.6m in funding.

Ingeniatrics intends to use the funds to develop an industrial-scale production plant for microencapsulation of Flow Focusing®, a technology that can be used to design and produce microparticles of a chosen size, structure and composition. It was invented and developed by the company’s President Alfonso Miguel Gañán Calvo.
Ingeniatrics will also recruit international marketing managers and acquire the necessary certificates.
