28 July 2017 Tablets & Capsules Lactose InhaLac 500 lactose for dry powder inhala- tion formulations is micronized so that 90 percent of particles are smaller than 10 microns. Micronized particles are suitable for use as fines in ternary formulations (5 to 15 percent by weight) to improve fine par- ticle fraction or as fillers in spherical pellets. Because of its high cohesive properties, APIs easily adhere to excipient surface to form agglomerates, which detach more readily from carrier surface than API monolayers to improve dispersion.
