Our Experience


Our transdermal drug delivery experience includes branded (NDA and 505(b)(2)), generic, and OTC pharmaceuticals. We partner with clients for early-stage drug development—like formulation and small scale, handmade prototyping—all the way through large-scale registration and commercialization. Beyond early-stage development, TM has numerous successes with tech transfer projects and site-change initiatives.

Our transdermal patch experience extends to just about every type of patch on the market, including active, passive, iontophoresis, matrix, reservoir, island, and sophisticated multi-material patches. Within these subtypes, we have worked across many therapeutic areas, including oncology, pain, and CNS.

About Transdermal Patch Drug Delivery


Transdermal patch drug delivery can be divided into two main subtypes: passive and active systems. Passive transdermal patches most often incorporate a drug-in-matrix layer between the release liner and backing layers. They provide a consistent diffusion rate depending upon the characteristics of the skin.

Alternatively, active transdermal patches typically use a reservoir system to contain the drug within a membrane. The diffusion properties of the membrane control drug availability. You will typically see the reservoir system used for formulations of higher molecular weight, which are known to be more difficult to transfer transdermally.

As a leading expert in both passive and active transdermal patch drug delivery, we excel in everything from simple projects to the most complex patches on the market.
