PharSQ® Spheres CM are minute spheres which can be used by a pharmaceutical manufacturer to apply a desired active substance. Depending on the type of product, these small and almost perfectly round spheres have a diameter of not more than between 0.1 and 1 millimetre. They can both be pressed to a tablet shape, or be filled in capsules or sachets. Their benefits appear most clearly when they are used to support patient health in applications which require an extremely fine dosage.
The high amount of spheres in this pharmaceutical form helps to improve medicament safety. Combining spheres with different coatings also allows to perfectly adjust the release of active substances in order to specifically adapt a medicament to the actual needs of a patient.
PharSQ® Spheres CM can be coated without using any organic solvent. This excludes any risk of contamination for patients and potentially reduces the release of organic substances to the environment. As they have a very low moisture content, PharSQ® Spheres CM can also absorb active substances sensitive to water and thus widen the range of possible medicaments to be offered to patients even further. Finally, the very high density of PharSQ® Spheres CM helps to reduce the size of tablets or capsules, making things much easier for people who cannot swallow very well.
