Micro Crystalline Cellulose Spheres (MCC Spheres) as Cellets are neutral carriers for pellet systems in controlled release formulations. As an inert and insoluble core, Cellets combine unique product and process properties and offer a wide range of particle sizes. Cellets are insoluble in water and are insoluble in diverse media and reduce agglomeration of pellets in the starting phase of the layering process. Cellets are innovative carriers for new drug entities, multiple dosage forms and highly active APIs when it comes to pellet formulations. It can support the improvement of formulations and optimisation of layering and coating processes. Pellet based on Cellets can be filled in capsules, sachets and sticks or compressed into matrix tablets.

TAP® (Tartaric Acid Pellets )
TAP® are highly spherical particles optimised for coating and layering processes to achieve reproducible product characteristics. In extended release pellet formulations TAP can be integrated to reduce the pH dependancy of the drug release therefore achieve the desired dissolution profile.
