Colorcon Launches New Coating Products
Colorcon, an excipient manufacturer, has introduced two new product advances in pharmaceutical coatings.
First, the company has launched Opadry QX, a flexible film coating. The coating can be applied in traditional pans and continuous coating equipment.
The company has also introduced the film coating system Opadry EC, Ethylcellulose Organic Coating System, designed for multiparticulate dosages. Colorcon continues to see market growth in multiparticulate dosage forms, especially for geriatric and pediatric populations, and Opadry EC provides a fully formulated solvent coating option that enables a range of release profiles for these specialist dosage forms.
