Posted by Helen Smith on January 22nd, 2022

To help accelerate the drug design process is always the goal of CD Formulation, a New York-based CRO company. As we put 2021 behind us, the aim of CD Formulation remains unchanged and there is even greater motivation to be a more active player in the pharmaceutical industry. Therefore, the company recently announces to start to provide tailor-made solutions for the manufacturing of thickener excipients.

Considering that there could be unique requirements for each different drug design project, the expert team of CD Formulation insists that customized production of excipients is a must and a better practice in the industry.

Thickener excipients can be added to a mixture to increase its viscosity without substantially modifying its other properties like taste. In addition, thickener excipients can also improve other behaviors about stability, suspending action as well as emulsions.

The thickener molecules contain many hydrophilic groups, such as hydroxyl, carboxyl, amino and carboxylate, which can hydrate with water molecules. The majority of thickener molecules are extracted or processed from natural plants and animals. “Our scientific teams are constantly developing new product solutions, and hence are well-positioned to help clients find better solutions for their drug design or development projects. Based on years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry, insights and suggestions will surely become an accelerator in the attempt to market candidate drugs,” says the Marketing Chief of CD Formulation.

Polysaccharides and polypeptides are two common types of thickeners. For instance, starch, cellulose, pectin and alginic acid are most commonly seen as polysaccharide thickeners, while gelatin, sodium caseinate and cheese pastry are most commonly seen as polypeptide thickeners. Polypeptides usually have limited sources, high prices, and fewer applications.

In general, the role of thickener excipients in medicine falls into the following aspects: stabilization, thickening effect, water retention, flavoring effect, etc. Please visit to explore the diversified excipient offering of CD Formulation, which encompasses colorant excipients, adsorbents, desiccants and humectants, binder excipients, and more.
