Powders and granules are themselves dosage forms. They can be administered directly or serve as intermediates in the production of other dosage forms. Our powders and granules services are tailored to enhance the oral dosage experience, providing patients with an easy-to-use medication alternative. We specialize in the development and manufacturing of high-quality powders and granules that cater to the unique needs of each medication.

Why Powders & Granules?

  • Bulk powders and granules are commonly used when large doses are needed or when the drug is unstable in other forms. These bulk forms can be dissolved or suspended in liquid before administration.
  • User-Friendly: Powders and granules are a great choice for those who have difficulty swallowing pills. They can be conveniently mixed with food or dissolved in drinks for easy ingestion.
  • Precise Dosing: With powders and granules, dosing can be accurately measured to ensure effective treatment.
  • Stable Formulations: Our powders and granules are designed for long-term stability, maintaining their potency and efficacy.

Oral Administration

  • Powders for oral administration are formulations consisting of solid, loose, dry particles of varying fineness. They contain one or more active substances, along with excipients and, if necessary, dyes and flavoring agents.
  • Granules are aggregates of powder particles with a size range of 200-4000 μm. They are commonly used as intermediates in tablet manufacturing.

Advantages of Powders and Granules

  • Improved Flow Properties: Granulation helps prevent segregation of the constituents in the powder mix, enhancing flow properties.
  • Enhanced Compaction Characteristics: Granules improve the compaction behavior of the mix, making it suitable for tablet compression.
  • Reconstitution: Some powders are reconstituted just before use to avoid chemical degradation. Examples include antibiotic powders for syrups and powders for injection.

Pharmaceutical Granulation Processes

  • Dry Granulation (Roller Compaction): Involves compacting powdered materials without using liquid binders. It’s suitable for moisture-sensitive drugs.
  • Wet Granulation Techniques:
    • Shear Granulators: Use mechanical force to form granules.
    • High-Speed Mixer Granulators: Combine mixing and granulation in one step.
    • Fluidized-Bed Granulation: Granules are formed by spraying a binder solution onto fluidized powder particles.
    • Extrusion-Spheronization: Extrude wet mass through a screen to form cylindrical granules.
    • Spray Drying: Convert liquid formulations into granules by spraying them into a hot drying chamber.
