By understanding patient needs, Adare Pharmaceuticals provides enhanced medicines, creating new possibilities for improved patient health. Our innovative Microcaps® Taste Masking Technology can help address the issue of taste acceptability.

 

Microcaps® Taste Masking Technology

 

Microcaps® Taste Masking Technology can be used to improve taste and provide alternative dosage forms.

 

This technology achieves a uniform and efficient drug particle (crystal, granulate, or liquid) coating and may enhance overall patient adherence by improving the product’s acceptability.

 

How Microcaps® Taste Masking Technology works

 

Microencapsulation technology employs versatile and precise coating techniques to encapsulate individual drug particles. This process uses coacervation (ie, phase separation) and can also incorporate a spray-coating process, creating polymeric membranes of varying degrees of porosity and thickness to completely encapsulate drug-containing particles. The membrane improves taste by forming a barrier between the drug and taste buds in the mouth.
