Self-emulsifying drug delivery systems (SEDDS) are formulations consisting of an oil phase, a non-ionic surfactant and a co-surfactant. The system can be emulsified rapidly in the gastrointestinal tract to produce fine droplets with particle size around 100 nm or less than 100 nm. Characteristics of self-microemulsifying drug delivery systems include: the formation of microemulsions is a spontaneous process that does not require the action of external energy; the amount of emulsifier is high and microemulsification is rapid and spontaneous; and the microemulsions formed have a long stability time.
The focus of solid-self-emulsifying drug delivery systems is to convert liquid or semi-solid formulations into solid formulations, such as powders, granules or microspheres, which can then be filled into capsules, bags or directly pressed into tablets. CD Formulation has the curing expertise and proven solutions to smoothly convert liquid or semi-solid formulations into solid formulations.
The specific development process includes the following procedures:
Determination of the form of the precursor self-emulsifying drug delivery system according to the customer's drug delivery system.
Since lipid hydrolysis can affect the solubility of the drug and cause precipitation, suitable adsorbents or porous materials need to be added.
The combination of screening of curing methods and excipients will benefit the synthesis of the client's SEDDS.
CD Formulation has many years of experience in providing phase solubility studies, dispersion tests, particle size and potential tests, thermodynamic stability studies, content determination, dilution tests, etc. We can help customers characterize their designed products or products sent to us by customers, and our researchers will also analyze the data and provide solutions to help customers develop better drugs and improve their drug delivery. We can help our customers to develop and improve the effectiveness of drug delivery.
