For over 40 years, innovating and improving existing technologies to better serve our customers has been a hallmark of Vitaquest. From our organic tablet technology to our proprietary microenvironment production areas, we have continuously found ourselves on the cutting edge of innovation. In keeping with this spirit, we are PROUD to introduce our new Oral Disintegrating Tablet Delivery System.
What are Oral Disintegrating Tablets?
Oral disintegrating tablets (ODTs or fast-melts), have become a preferred oral dosage alternative to conventional tablets and capsules because they can dissolve quickly in the mouth in a matter of seconds, without the need for water. The convenience of ODTs, along with their superior taste and ease of swallowing, explain why more than half of individuals surveyed have expressed a preference for ODTs compared to other oral dosage forms.
The popularity of ODTs has created high market demand, and yet the existing formulation methods are finicky, and manufacturing processes tend to be slow and inefficient. Our Product Development team sought to explore how ODTs could be better designed and produced more efficiently to meet customer needs. When put to the task, the best and brightest minds in the industry delivered.
Vitaquest’s Oral Disintegrating Tablet Delivery System
After months of research, testing, and analysis, our Oral Disintegrating Tablet Delivery System was unveiled in 2021. The impact was immediate!
The novel Vitaquest ODT delivery system has streamlined the formulation and development process, has significantly reduced production costs and times, and has helped us to demonstrate our ability to “lead the pack” in the competitive nutraceutical market.
This revolutionary one-step system is elegant in its simplicity. No special manufacturing equipment or expensive tooling are required. Simply add the active ingredients to the proprietary ODT base, then dry-blend and compress. The result is a uniform product with a smooth mouthfeel and a superior appearance and taste.
The innovation, lessons, and technology used to develop this new Oral Disintegrating Tablet Delivery System are not confined to ODTs alone. Our Product Development team is already hard at work expanding the system’s methodology to improve integrity and disintegration characteristics on all types of tablet products.
“We anticipate that this innovative fast melt delivery system will provide even more benefits moving forward as we continue to find new ways to integrate it into tablet formulations across the board,” said Vitaquest CEO Patrick Brueggman after the system’s release.
Many of those benefits are already being realized!
