TAPs. The safe and easy way to multi-particulate dosage forms

Multi-particulate dosage forms have striking advantages compared to monolithic dosage forms, such as:

  • low variability of gastric emptying
  • low dependency on nutrition state
  • low risk of localized high drug concentrations in the GI
  • reduced risk of sudden dose dumping
  • lower intra- and inter-individual variability
  • high control on time and place of drug delivery

This means firstly higher safety and secondly better compliance for your patients, and added-value for your products.

    Satisfied partners

    TAP is a great offering for our clients that have a drug that shows pH dependent solubility and requires an acidic environment to improve solubility, release, and absorption. The TAP pellets can do a great job of creating the acidic microenvironment required to make their drug successful.


    APIs with poor solubility in alkalic media, like in the intestine, sometimes need a kick with a small acidic environment and we are happy to support our customers with TAP® as excipient for this dilemma.


    Our project partners love to work with TAPs, as they accelerate the dissolution rate of weakly basic drugs creating the best in-situ micro-environment conditions. You get TAPs in diverse sizes – perfect for multi-particulate formulations!
