Technology platform

Magle Chemoswed is a unique international contract development manufacturing company dedicated to bringing ideas to product for customers alongside building our own product pipeline based on our patented technology base. As an integrated company, we have extensive capabilities across the value chain, from the discovery, development and manufacture of medicines and medical devices that rely on our patented and trade secret protected technology platform.

Our technology base is microporous polysaccharide microspheres. These are derived from purified plant starch that is transformed through a unique chemical process developed in-house, which allows the control of microsphere size from 10 µm to 2000 µm. The microspheres are naturally bio-absorbable and biodegradable.

We have a dedicated and highly experienced research and development team that is supported through the integration of the services we offer as a company. Our development is expedited due to our ability to develop in parallel with analytic, formulation, and manufacturing expertise.

We have developed thirteen microsphere families with varying characteristics for wide use across our strategic markets. In-house research and development teams have adapted the technology to create gels, absorbable sponges, unwoven absorbable fibers, naturally degradable films and microporous polysaccharide microspheres.

Technology markets

We have invested heavily in a team of experts specializing in formulating the microsphere technology, and we currently have formulations with medical device applications in Advanced Wound Care, Surgical and Diagnostics as well as in the Drug Delivery segment.

Surgical and Diagnostics

In 2019 the company received CE approval for a technology product that is formulated for use in vascular occlusion in the treatment of tumors in the liver and lung, alongside cytostatic drugs. The product is manufactured at Magle Chemoswed and marketed by a distribution partner under the trade name of EmboCept. Alongside this, we continue to increase our portfolio in the vascular occlusion area. We are actively working on our portfolio growth and building an occlusion franchise, through expansion in the product range. We are supporting our distribution partner to enter the North American and Chinese markets, and expanding European reach with the EmboCept range of products.

First-in-class Products

Based on our technology, we have successfully patented a first-in-class product for the detection of pancreatic fluid leakage during surgical procedures. The product has been developed based on our technology and in partnership with the Heidelberg University Hospital.

Advanced Wound Care

Our first advanced wound care product is approved for commercialization in Europe (CE marked). The product, a hydrogel containing an antimicrobial for the treatment of chronic and diabetic wounds, will be distributed as a wound care hydrogel in Europe and the Middle East through our commercial partners.

Technology Products and Pipeline

EmboCept® S

EmboCept® S is a microsphere-based medical device used in vascular occlusion of liver and lung tumors and is marketed by PharmaCept.


A non-allergenic hydrogel based on our unique microsphere technology. It contains PHMB incorporated into fully biodegradable starch microspheres, which are suspended in a gel matrix for optimal infection prevention and treatment. The gel delivers moisture to the wound, whilst maintaining enough absorption capacity for exudate, debris and bacteria and is currently marketed by AXXO


A first-in-class medical device for the detection of pancreatic fluid leakage during open or minimally invasive surgical procedures. SmartPAN is approved for commercialization in Europe (CE marked).
