Metrics Offers New Taste Masking Technology

April 23, 2013

Cleantaste improves taste and stability

Metrics Inc. now offers Cleantaste taste masking technology that enables polymer coating of individual drug crystals to produce fine particles sized 25um to 125um. According to the company, this technology can improve the taste and mouth-feel of drugs and can be used to support stability or deliver sustained release characteristics. Cleantaste technology is suitable for orally dispersible tablets and encapsulated products.
 
Dr. Brad Gold, vice president of pharmaceutical development, said, “If patients don’t take their medications because they taste bad, or they’re difficult to swallow, then that obviously can have serious detrimental effects on treatment plans and health outcomes. We want to help patients comply with prescription regimens by improving the palatability of medications and making them easier to swallow. Cleantaste technology allows us to do that.”
