A new inhalative lactose grade with specific particle size distribution is characterized by the typical flow- and surface-characteristic of fine milled lactose grades. This provides an additional tool for the formulator to tune and optimize the performance of the DPI product.
300 is a lactose grade with 90% of the particles between 35-50 µm (Sympatec) or 40-56 µm (Malvern).MEGGLE´s extension of the InhaLac® product family - closing the gap between medium sized carrier lactose and fine milled grades for dry powder inhalation.
