Press Release | MEGGLE Excipients & Technology
NOVEMBER 14, 2017
Wasserburg, Germany: – Pharmaceutical lactose specialist MEGGLE Excipients & Technology (MEGGLE) will bring an expanded range of lactose anhydrous and lactose monohydrate-based pharmaceutical agents and excipients when it returns to the huge CPhI India expo in Mumbai.
MEGGLE will display under the banner of its Indian distribution partner, Signet Chemical Corporation, at stand F1 in Hall 1 of the Bombay Exhibition Center.
Showcasing InhaLac 500
In particular, the MEGGLE display will feature its newly developed InhaLac 500, the new micronized lactose grade, specifically designed for inhalation.
Developed at MEGGLE’s Wasserburg laboratories in Germany, InhaLac 500 features very small milled particles, highly cohesive, with PSD x90≤ 10µmx50 ≤ 5 μm. This allows a wider choice of applications as fines or as co-agglomerate in dry powder inhalation products. A further key benefit is long shelf life, with high stability reducing retest intervals to 12 months, twice as long as competitor products.
Established Indian presence
MEGGLE has become an established presence at CPhI India, having exhibited year on year almost since the event was founded in 2005.
“This amazing event gives us a great platform from which to conduct strategic sales discussions with leading customers across Asia and to showcase new products,” said Dr. Siang Meng Chua, of MEGGLE Singapore, who heads sales and technical support for MEGGLE’s pharmaceutical grade lactoses in Asia-Pac Ex China.
“For procurement and sourcing department heads, this is a great chance to discuss their supply requirements for the year ahead and for formulators of solid dosage forms, an opportunity to get face-to-face technical guidance on enhanced functionality for co-processed excipients to streamline and speed up their formulation development processes,” noted Dr. Chua.
