WEST POINT, Pa., Oct. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Colorcon, Inc. (www.colorcon.com) today announced the introduction of two new coating systems, Opadry® CA and Opamix™. Opadry® CA, a fully formulated osmotic coating system, is the first, one-step, semi-permeable membrane designed to ensure consistent release from osmotic pump tablets. Opamix™, is a pre-formulated additive blend developed in collaboration with the BASF Corporation for use with Kollicoat Smartseal 30 D to effectively mask unpleasant tastes which can be applied to a variety of solid forms including tablets, granules or smaller particles.
Further information about these new coating systems will be highlighted at the following meetings:
- CPhI Worldwide, Madrid, October 9-11, Excipient Pavilion, Stand #9D17
- American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists' (AAPS) Annual Meeting and Exposition, Chicago, October 14-18, Booth #1419
"Colorcon is excited to expand its scientifically validated pharmaceutical formulation coating system offerings and to continue its leadership role in bringing technological advancements to pharmaceutical manufacturers worldwide," said Kamlesh Oza, General Manager, Film Coatings, Colorcon, Inc.
