Highlights DiCom SANAQ® SP 204


  • Large Surface area of Light Magnesium Oxide gives enhanced protection / stability to acid labile APIs from a 360° alkaline microenvironment.
  • Handling and processing with Light Magnesium Oxide is challenging, DICOM SANAQ-DC SP204 designed in a way for easy handling and maximum protection.
  • Light magnesium oxide is very fluffy and difficult to process directly.
  • Improper die filling. Segregation tendency leads to weight variation / non-uniform alkaline microenvironment / unstable formulation.
