Multiparticulate Systems

In a multiparticulate drug delivery system, the dosage of the drug is sub-divided, in contrast to a classic single-unit dosage form. Although multiparticulate systems may be more complicated to formulate and manufacture, they provide advantages over single-unit modified release systems.

Colorcon’s product portfolio covers multiparticulate development from drug layering substrate to final film coating. Sugar spheres provide an excellent coating substrate as a reliable platform for drug loading.
