Lipid Multiparticulate Technology Technical Brief

Lipid Multiparticulates (LMPs) are round, smooth matrix multiparticulates, typically 50-1,200 μm in diameter depending on the method of manufacture, which consist of one or more GRAS lipid excipients that are solid at room temperature. LMP technology has the capacity to combine a breadth of functionality with a range of finished dosage formats — capsules, sachets, suspensions and tablets. Capsugel has developed novel LMP technology based on a proprietary melt-spray-congeal process. This innovative drug delivery approach, which has market precedence, can be used for taste-masking, extended release and bioavailability enhancement for pharmaceutical, health and nutritional products.
