Zapliq®

Zapliq® – The revolutionary new delivery system that makes solid dosages as easy to swallow as a sip of water

Zapliq® is an innovative new format for oral delivery. When chewed the tablet rapidly liquifies to increase saliva production and making a solid oral dosage as easy to swallow as a sip of water.

Zapliq® – New format offering pleasant relief – fast!
Consumers rate new format superior to existing delivery systems and intuitively perceive Zapliq® as offering a fast onset of action. Zapliq® was tested by children, adults, and elderly in US and Germany with amazing results. The consumers found Zapliq® to offer a ‘pleasant’ experience compared to existing formats. The positive evaluations were significant across the various needs of the consumers.

The pleasant experience perceived by the consumer is the result of a new unique formulation.

The new, patented format, Zapliq®, is in its essence a chewable tablet, which, when chewed, rapidly turns into a liquid, increasing the saliva generation. According to consumers, this is exactly what makes Zapliq® a pleasant experience. Zapliq® is the answer to aversion and difficulties swallowing existing tablets. The unique formulation further proves suitable for taste masking a range of API’s, making it applicable across a wide range of different treatment/prevention areas as a valuable alternative to existing delivery formats.

Another interesting feature of Zapliq® is that it is perfect on the go – you don’t need water! Zapliq® offers new unique opportunities to your product portfolio.

Gum

At Fertin Pharma we are experts in the complex challenge of developing medicated chewing gum. Adding active substances to chewing gum is not a simple task and it requires some of the world’s leading experts in the area. Our R&D department employs highly qualified employees, an indispensable part of our organization.

As a delivery system for active substances, chewing gum has unique benefits that set it apart from traditional forms such as tablets. Chewing gum is convenient, healthy and enjoyable, providing the end user with a consumer experience in line with some of the latest confectionery gum trends – and ultimately may help improve patient adherence to medical treatment plans.

We employ two successful gum technologies for our medicated chewing gum products. Our extruded chewing gum technology is utilized for our nicotine chewing gum and our Medichew® technology is used for other products.

Pharma

Our pharmaceutical expertise is the foundation behind Fertin’s position as a preferred partner for medicated gum

More than 30 years of experience with medicated chewing gum provides Fertin with substantial know-how related to the development and production of medicated chewing gum for pharmaceutical applications. Our goal is to create world class pharmaceutical products, which is why we promote a compliance mentality throughout the organization that is focused on making high-quality medicated chewing gum.

Nicotine

On a global scale 6 million people die each year from tobacco related diseases, so it is no surprise that the WHO characterizes this as an epidemic. At Fertin Pharma, we believe that the understanding of nicotine and its use is instrumental in challenging this epidemic, thereby supporting healthier living.
