MULTI-LAYER® is a technology, developed by S.I.I.T. Nutritional Division through which is possible, by a very unique tableting process, to manufacture tablets constituted by 2 or 3 layers. Each layer is characterized by a particular active (or mixture of actives) or by a particular way of releasing the active or the mixture.
MULTI-LAYER® technology application benefits are:
mostly related with the possibility of having time and/or pH-dependent layers in the same tablets. MULTI-LAYER® allows therefore to formulate products double or triple shooting actives, normally, slowly and/or quickly releasable.
TYPES OF APPLICATIONS
MULTI-LAYER® technology can be applied to finished product formulated as multi-layer tablets releasing actives.
Products already developed are:
• Double shooting magnesium
• Double shooting vitamin C plus probiotics
• Mouth-dissolving actives for upper respiratory tract plus normal and slowly releasing actives for throat and immune system
• Triple shooting vitamins (normal and slowly released)
Each application of MULTI-LAYER® on finished products is branded and could be protected by patents issued or pending.
