MEGGLE to launch latest InhaLac® offering at RDD Europe 2023
Wasserburg, Germany: – Pharmaceutical lactose specialist MEGGLE Wasserburg GmbH (MEGGLE) will be a prominent presence at May’s Respiratory Drug Delivery (RDD) in the South of France conference, using the event as a launch platform for its latest inhalable lactose grade, InhaLac® 180.
InhaLac® 180 is tailored to dry powder inhalation (DPI) applications with a highly uniform particle size distribution (PSD) of X10=5-15μm, X50=50-100μm, and X90=120-160μm and characterized by the typical flow and surface characteristics of milled lactose.
Expanding developer’s tool box
The launch is designed to bring MEGGLE lactose excipient quality to a particular customer need identified in feedback, also expanding the tool box for developers.
“This is a very popular and frequently used PSD distribution among the DPI community,” commented MEGGLE Project Manager for DPI R&D, Katja Milkreiter, who played a leading role in developing the product.
Advancing DPI development
“This new grade should open the way to further DPI developments and help developers of generic formulations to fulfill requirements,” added Dr. Constanze Müller, MEGGLE Business Development Inhalation, who will also be present at the Antibes conference.
“This is a significant expansion of our portfolio that allows us a broader positioning in the market,” explained Dr. Müller.
