Posted by Helen Smith on February 19th, 2021

Excipients are of vital importance in the process of drug development. A good choice of excipient can lead to the formulation of stable dosage forms. To better meet the increasing demand for excipients, Formulationbio supplies a wide range of excipients for different research purposes, including binders, lubricants, diluents, disintegrants, emulsifiers, plasticizers, surfactants, sweeteners, fillers, stabilizers and so on.

An excipient is any component, other than the active substance, present in a medicinal product or used in the manufacture of the product. They have multiple functions and often act as a carrier for the active substance.

“As a leading manufacturer of excipients, Formulationbio has served the pharmaceutical industry for years. We launch varieties of excipients to help improve the performance of our clients’ drug products. The pharmaceutical excipients we developed and produced can be used for solid, semi-solid and liquid dosage forms,” says a spokesperson from Formulationbio. “In addition, we can provide custom pharmaceutical excipients services, such as preformulation, formulation and analytical testing of excipients, to address the needs and formulation challenges of our customers.”

The excipients provided at Formulationbio include, but are not limited to:

Binder Excipients

Binder excipients are formulated to act as an adhesive to bind together dry ingredients such as powders and granules. They can also give volume to low active dose tablets. Some of the binder excipients provided by Formulationbio are: Cellactose 80, KG Grade Microcrystalline Cellulose, UF Grade Microcrystalline Cellulose, Formulationbio 720 for Direct Compression, etc.

Disintegrant Excipients

Disintegrants are excipients used to enhance the disintegration process of tablet formulation when they make contact with GIT fluid. Some of the disintegrant excipients provided by Formulationbio are: Ludiflash, Primellose Croscarmellose sodium, Primojel Sodium starch glycolate, Solani Amylum Native potato starch, SuperStarch 200 Partly pregelatinised maize starch and more.

Filler Excipients

Filler excipients are used to increase the volume of the material to enable easier processing of the ingredients and make it into a size suitable for consumption. Also, they can stabilize the product and help during manufacturing.

Lubricant Excipients

Lubricant excipients such as RetaLac and Colloidal Silicon Dioxide can decrease friction between the pharmaceutical formulations particles and the tableting equipment contact surfaces.

Sweetener Excipients

Sweetening agent excipients are substances that sweeten and mask the taste of food, beverages, and medications to make them palatable to the consumer. To name a few here: Tablettose 100, Tablettose 70, Dextrose anyhdrous C, Dextrose monohydrate GC, Glucose syrups, HI-SWEET 42 High Fructose Corn Syrup, HI-SWEET 55 High Fructose Corn Syrup, LYCASIN 75/75 HBC Maltitol Syrup.

Coating Systems Excipients

Coatings are added to tablets to help make large, difficult to swallow pills easier to take. They also have other benefits, for example, to prevent deterioration from water and moisture and to allow for breakdown in a specific organ in the body. Some of the coating systems excipients provided by Formulationbio are: CELPHERE MCC Spherical Seed Core, SWELSTAR Pregelatinized Starch NF MX-1(Sustained release matrix agent), Anhydrous Glycerol, Dibutyl Sebacate, METHOCEL Premium CR Cellulose Ether, and VIVACOAT A - Ready-to-Use Coating System.
