LTS develops and manufactures drug delivery systems that offer patients reliable therapeutic efficacy with total comfort and convenience.
LTS provides alternative drug delivery systems in the form of transdermal therapeutic systems (TTS), oral thin films (OTF) and micro array patches (MAP).
TTS are applied directly to the skin. The active substance is absorbed by the skin and distributed through the body via the bloodstream. This innovative mode of administration has improved the simplicity of treatment for patients for almost 30 years.
Oral thin films are loaded with active substances. The Thin films are taken orally and dissolve immediately in the mouth or are applied to the mucosa. For transmucosal films, the active substance enters the bloodstream directly via the oral mucosa, without having to first pass through the gastrointestinal tract.
LTS’ research and development (R&D) focuses on new technologies to complement and expand the potential of alternative drug delivery systems. It is continually developing its TTSs and OTFs, but the newest technology is the Micro Array Patch (MAP). The future of drug delivery. It helps to enhance the delivery of a drug through the transdermal/intradermal route overcoming various problems associated with the conventional formulations. It is based on a dissolvable microneedle technique, and it offers many advantages for a custom-made design. Advantages are
As a business-to-business (B2B) partner LTS does not sell any of its products, making it a dedicated technology partner to the pharmaceutical industry, rather than a competitor against classical pharmaceutical companies.

Based on a successful feasibility study, LTS develops the ideal delivery system for each customer and each substance.
