If you want to create a patient-centric medicine with the best chances of compliance, then paying attention to the design of your tablet is crucial. But as well as keeping patients in mind, it’s also important to consider manufacturing – decisions made about a tablet and its formulation, including its coating finish, can have a significant impact on production efficiency (1, 2). In short, your formulation strategy matters for many different reasons.
Over the past two decades with Colorcon, I have seen a lot of change in terms of formulation needs as companies strive to be more efficient and deliver better medicines. Importantly, our customers’ requirements need solutions to match their business challenges and production needs, as well as the needs of patients. Colorcon is a unique company in that it is extremely innovative and agile, even though we operate within a tightly regulated market. This is important, as it means we can respond as market needs change, providing exceptional products, local technical support and regional production capabilities. Today, for example, many pharma companies have regional manufacturing facilities and require the same raw materials at the same consistency and quality for use across these different geographical territories. Through expansion of our global footprint, Colorcon now has capabilities in strategic locations around the world to enable easy, local access and supply for our customers. Our industry expertise has continued to deepen over the years. While Colorcon’s focus has always been in film coating and speciality excipients, through our alliance with DuPont we also represent an extensive line of excipients for modified release applications. This is important expertise that pharma companies are looking for in a long-term partner.
