Spray drying is an established technology in the pharmaceutical industry to create amorphous, soluble forms of active ingredients. Key for a successful process is the use of the right functional polymer to ensure a stable solid dispersion. BASF offers a wide range of functional polymers to choose from, along with all other excipients typically used in the formulation.
Increase of solubility and bioavailability using spray drying and BASF excipients
Within the extended solubility improvement toolbox of a formulator, spray drying is an accepted choice due to its market track record and specific advantages. Its capability to form amorphous solid dispersions of poorly soluble drugs, resulting in increased solubility, along with good control over particle size has made it the commercial process for various active ingredients.
