Unique gastro-retentive system for targeted nutrient delivery.
Your “floating technology” for a prolonged absorption window in the stomach.
What is EUDRATEC® GRS?
EUDRATEC® GRS is a technology from Evonik that provides a gastro-retentive system (floating capsule)
Release control is achieved by coating the capsule with EUDRAGIT® NM 30 D

What makes EUDRATEC® GRS attractive?
Improves bioavailability of the active ingredient by increasing the gastric residence time
The absorption window in the stomach can be prolonged up to 4 hours
Formulation is suitable for moisture sensitive APIs
Conventional equipment and technologies are used for manufacturing
