ARx, LLC., custom develops and manufactures drug-in-adhesive patches for transdermal drug delivery in support of both branded and generic applications. Leveraging over 30 years of transdermal adhesive expertise, excipients are carefully selected to assure patient comfort during wear and to achieve the intended drug delivery profile. Material selection is further complemented by options for chemically compatible release liners to complete the product construction. Formulation scientists carefully design both single- and multi-layered patches for specialized drug delivery up to seven days.
