What is VELOXTAR™ technology?
VELOXTAR™ is a technology that produces a very thin orally disintegrating tablet (ODT) like a coin. The distinctive tablet shape and unique formulation design allow the ODTs to disintegrate in 4-6 seconds.
There are several technologies to prepare ultra-rapid ODTs (UR-ODT). One of that is lyophilization. The advantage of lyophilized ODTs is extremely short disintegration time in 1-3 seconds, however, the tablets are fragile and easily moistened after opening the packages. Additionally, special equipment is required for the production.
Another method of producing ODTs is dry tableting. Although it is a simple process that can manufacture ODTs with higher hardness and practical hygroscopic stability, they are difficult to disintegrate not more than 10 seconds like lyophilized ODTs.
VELOXTAR™ is a state-of-the-art technology that combines the advantages of lyophilization and dry tableting method. VELOXTAR™ technology significantly reduces the disintegration time, while still providing practical tablet hardness.
Features of VELOXTAR™ ODTs
Ultra rapid disintegration in 4-6 seconds in the oral cavity
The disintegration is realized with the distinctive shape and our unique formulation technology.
Simple manufacturing process
VELOXTAR™ ODTs can be manufactured by the dry tableting method.
Sufficient hygroscopic stability
VELOXTAR™ ODTs are less prone to significant performance loss due to moisture absorption. They are ease to handle after opening than lyophilized ODTs.
Practical tablet strength
Despite of the thinness, VELOXTAR ODT™ has practical strength without cracking and chipping.
VELOXTAR™ ODTs are suitable for these patients with:
- Medication refusal (e.g., Schizophrenia, Alzheimer 's disease)
- Seizure (e.g., Migraine, Angina attack)
- Restriction of fluid intake (e.g., Kidney disease, Nocturia)
- Dysphagia (e.g., Parkinson's disease)
- Poor swallowing ability (e.g., Pediatric and geriatric)
