Pharmaceuticals Excipients

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.

Microcrystalline Cellulose & Carboxymethyl Cellulose Sodium IP/USP

Solution for Suspensions, Lotions and Creams
Suspension: As suspending agent for readily constitutable suspension Absence of sedimentation in some of formulation.
Lotion: As oil/water emulsifier for lotions and creams
Creams: Emulsion Stabilizer and thickener with opacifier for creams and gels.

MICCEL CMC is the mixture of microcrystalline cellulose and carboxymethyl cellulose Sodium various ratio depend on application. We produce different types of grades.

Microcrystalline Cellulose

Silicified Microcrystalline Cellulose – USP

Silicification of MCC increased physical properties such as true density, Hausner ratio, porosity, ejection force and specific surface area. Other properties such as bulk and tap densities were reduced due to the amorphous and light character of fumed silica. MICCEL S is the mixture of microcrystalline cellulose and colloidal silicon dioxide (MCC/CSD at 98:2 ratio) and most compactible grade of SMC with flow characteristics similar to doubling the parties size of MCC.

Powdered Cellulose

APB produces a powdered Cellulose MICCEL – P which consists of pure alpha cellulose to facilitate usage in the food industry. Its particles are rod shaped, which above certain concentration build a three dimensional network in water system through hydrogen bonding. Being so stable in nature, it is often use in the food industry as an additive because it improves stability, gives an improved texture, increases consistency and creaminess in case of liquid consumables, acts as a bulking agent, and an anti-sticking extrusion aid. It also reduces fat pickup in fried foods and gives them their golden yellow color.


Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose (CMC)

Carboxymethyl cellulose, also known as cellulose gum, is a modified form of cellulose. It has carboxymethyl groups attached to some of its sugar-like units that form the cellulose structure. This modified cellulose is commonly used in its sodium form, called sodium carboxymethyl cellulose.


Magnesium Stearate

Magnesium Stearate is a combination salt that contains two significant compounds magnesium mineral & saturated stearic fatty acid. Both compounds, Magnesium mineral ions & Steareate molecules of saturated stearic fatty acids, create Magnesium Stearate.

Mannitol is a colorless low-calorie-based sugar alcohol. A biological system such as the intestines takes lots of time to absorb this low-calorie sweetener. An osmotic & duration component, which naturally exists in fruits and vegetables, boosts the osmolality of blood plasma. Therefore, as an antiglaucoma agent-based medication, Mannitol injection is prescribed by doctors.

Pregelatinized Starch

Calcium Stearate

Calcium stearate serves a dual role in various industries. Primarily, it acts as a lubricant within the plastics industry and plays a crucial role as an anti-caking additive in pharmaceuticals and cosmetics..

Pregelatinized Starch

Pregelatinized starch is a vegan compound available in different plant-based food sources such as wheat, potato, corn, etc. There is a vital difference between starch & pregelatinized starch. First organic starch is cooked initially, and then it is dried using the latest equipment in the starch factory.
