DP™ -Dry Powder Technology

ForTe bv has developed an innovative dry-blended powder technology for instant aqueous suspensions/solutions.

Applicable as a proprietary platform technology for a range of active ingredients used in pharmaceutical human and veterinary Rx & OTC products.

ForTe’s Instant Suspension Powder Technology comprises a specific combination of conventionally available Pharmaceutical excipients, (e.g. polysaccharides-polyols & solubilizers). This specific excipients combination makes it possible to instantly reconstitute ‘Shake & Use’ aqueous based suspensions or solutions.

The system has fast and instant suspending properties and is designed for application in single or multi-dose products. Either for use as a conventional suspension or for use as a special suspension, with integrated taste masking and/or controlled release properties. The system allows a drug load up to 30% solids. 

Technology Properties

ForTe’s Instant Suspension Powder Technology has excellent wettability, viscosity and “settling-rate” properties. Our findings show a clear advantage over the tested competitor excipients. Illustrated in the following graphs.


Tested Applications

ForTe has successfully tested and applied the technology in various Rx & OTC indication areas, e.g. Analgesics, Antibiotics, Antacids, Disinfectants, Proton-pump inhibitors, Anti diabetes and a range of Cough & Cold formulations.

Just add water

The technology is formulated as an Instant “Shake & Use” powder system suitable for the Instant reconstitution of suspensions & solutions. Which after reconstitution either result fully dispersed and stable suspensions or in complete solutions.
