Microcrystalline Cellulose IP/BP/USP/JP/EP

The MICCEL grades of Microcrystalline Cellulose of Ankit Pulps and Boards, are widely accepted excipients by a number of leading pharmaceutical industries in India for its quality, consistency and customer service. Microcrystalline Cellulose revolutionized tableting because of its unique compressibility and carrying capacity. Its exhibits excellent properties as an excipient for solid dosages forms, compact well under minimum compression pressures, has high binding capability and creates tablets that are extremely hard & stable, yet disintegrate rapidly.

Tablets Manufacturing – Applications

ProcessAdvantagesMethods of use
A. Direct CompressionChemical purity, binder, disintegrant, flow aid, filler, inertnessTable making by direct compression involves only weighing mixing & compressing
B. Wet GranulationBinder, rapid wicking action, permits fast additional of granulation fluid being most absorbent, most inert

Miccel Features

-> Excellent hardness levels at low compression forces

-> Low Lubricant sensitivity

-> Low Tablet Friability

-> Good Disintegration aid

-> Super Stability

Performing in Tablets & Capsules Making

Chemical PurityNon-reactive Organic ingredient, Extremely Low level of organic & Inorganic
BinderHigh Hardness level, low friability
DisintegrantKeep Uniform Concentration of drug in solution
Flow aidRequire less Lubricant than other typical binders.
InertnessDrug chemical status is maintained.
AbsorbentKeeps drugs uniformly mixed.

Quantum to be used

The amount to be used in direct compression characteristic of the formulation’s other ingredients.

-> Typical use level is of 15 to 20%

-> Granulation use level 15%

-> Levels in excess of 90% has been reported

Co-Processed MCC

Co-processing could lead to formation of excipients with superior quality product compare to the simple physical mixture of their components. Co-processing results in a product with added value related to the ratio of its functionality and price. Development of co-processed directly compressible adjuvant, starts with the selected of the excipients to be combined, their preparation method to get an optimized product with desired physic-chemical parameters.

* We can make custmize excipients according to your requirement.
