Ora-Blend is a flavored oral suspending vehicle used to simplify the process involved in the extemporaneous compounding of oral suspensions. Medicated powder can be incorporated into Ora-Blend to form elegant, uniform and physically stable suspensions.
Ora-Blend combines the suspending properties of Ora-Plus with the flavoring agents of Ora-Sweet and is ideal for:
? Pediatric suspensions
? Geriatric suspensions
Ora-Blend is an aqueous-based, sweetened vehicle consisting of a synergistic blend of suspending agents that have a high degree of colloidal activity. The suspending agents form a structured, gel-like matrix which suspend particles and allow for little settling. Ora-Blend is buffered to a slightly acidic pH to help reduce degradation of medicinal agents through oxidation. An anti-foam agent is incorporated into Ora-Blend to allow for vigorous shaking with minimal foam.
