Pharma Excipients

Microcrystalline Cellulose

Discovered in 1955, the excipient microcrystalline cellulose is the most commonly used binder on the pharmaceutical market. It’s popularity comes from its versatility and a huge range of applications. It can bulk, disintegrate, bind, and lubricate. It enhances stability and extends drug release. As a natural, fibre-rich component, it’s nontoxic and chewable. It’s also a favourite among dissolvable drug manufacturers. It’s carved a space for itself as an excipient in both the supplement industry and the potent drug delivery niche. Its scope is not limited to capsules and tablets. It’s used in medicated gels, as well.
