Pharmatrans TAP® – Tartaric Acid Pellets
Pharmatrans Sanaq has introduced TAP® as highly optimised Tartaric Acid Pellets that can be used in solid dosage oral formulations.
TAP® particles are formulated for superior coating and layering properties for more reproducible product characteristics and to improve the dissolution profile in extended release pellet formulations.
Tartaric acid is generally regarded as a nontoxic and nonirritant material that is widely used in pharmaceutical formulations with bicarbonates, as the acid component of effervescent granules, powders and tablets.
Tartaric acid is also used in beverages, confectionery, food products and pharmaceutical formulations in three different ways:
- as an acidulant
- as a sequestering agent
- as an antioxidant synergist
TAP® advantages and applications
Pharmatrans Sanaq TAP® Tartaric Acid Pellets are formed from particles that are highly optimised to support coating and layering processes to achieve reproducible product characteristics.
In extended release pellet formulations TAP® can be integrated to reduce the pH-dependency of the drug release and therefore achieve the desired dissolution profile.
