Taste Masking Technology
Using its patented Actimask technology, SPI Pharma can help customers improve the taste, effectiveness and mouth feel of a wide range of tablets and pain relief drugs.
The success of any tablet medication may depend on how easy and pleasant it is for patients to take. By incorporating SPI Pharma’s taste masking technology in their products, formulators help to increase their chances of success by improving patient compliance.
Actimask® technology provides an excellent taste barrier and mouth feel without hindering the release of the active ingredient and subsequent symptom relief.
Customers can choose from two Actimask products:
- Actimask Acetaminophen has little or none of acetaminophen’s bitter taste but the same drug release properties as uncoated acetaminophen
- Actimask Ibuprofen provides minimal drug release during the first few minutes to prevent any burning sensation in the throat
Actimask is also available through Pharmasolutions, SPI Pharma’s comprehensive drug development and testing service focused on patient-friendly dosage forms that can deliver convenience, compliance, and efficacy. Pharmasolutions enables customers to leverage SPI Pharma’s material and formulation expertise to reduce trial and error and get to market faster.
