Multiparticulate drug delivery systems are increasing as pharmaceutical companies seek to improve clinical effectiveness, extend product life cycle and meet the needs for different age populations. Sugar spheres, as an inert starting substrate, provide a reliable platform for drug loading.
The selection of the right sugar sphere is a crucial part of the formulation, so it’s important to understand the critical success factors for drug loading:
- Surface roughness and sphericity to ensure uniform application
- Reliable and reproducible uniformity for batch-to-batch consistency
- Range of particle sizes to meet different dose levels
