Tablets and capsules are currently the most popular oral solid dosage form in the pharmaceutical industry. Tablets and capsules with fine particles of the active product, give a significantly faster dissolution. These particles can be added in the form of micro pellets.
Pellets are not powder and not granulate; they are characterized by a defined shape and a very narrow particle size distribution. This allows a very wide range of applications of pellets that integrate active substances.
Employing hot-melt / melt extrusion, even the processing of poorly soluble carrier/active substance combinations, no longer poses a major problem in the pharmaceutical industry. Continuous manufacturing delivers many benefits in production and in speeding up the development cycles for new drugs.
MAAG offers a wide range of products for hot-melt extrusion in food and pharma. Depending on the desired process we have several products that can meet the customers’ requirements.
