Lactose, a carrier in dry powder inhalations (DPI), provides good flowability enabling device to be filled and assist with deagglomeration of cohesive drug particles. Type of device, filling system & drug characteristics will determine your specific lactose requirements.
Grades available include:
Sieved & alpha-monohydrate lactose for adhesive mixtures
Gently milled alpha-monohydrate lactose for adhesive mixtures & fines
Micronised lactose for agglomerates
Products are made customer specific by milling, sieving, classification and blending, ensuring a well controlled particle size distribution tailored for formulation.
