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.
The standard types start with Cellets 100 (100µm-200µm) and end with Cellets 1000 (1,000µm-1,400µm).
Starting with particle sizes from 100µm-200µm, we can offer micropellets for highly active low dosage APIs.
With cellets 90, we present the first type as below 100µm, which keeps the known parameters of sphericity and low friability of the cellets.
Cellets 127 have a particle size distribution of 100µm-160µm and enable uniform dissolution profiles. Other particle sizes can be defined on customer demand.
Cellets are a perfect tool for combinatory and controlled release products. Due to the inert behaviour of the microcrystalline cellulose the potential incompatibilities of sensitive actives can be reduced.
Cellets are water insoluble, and the high abrasion resistance improves and simplifies the coating process. The physical properties allow a reproducible and stable process. Cellets are insoluble in diverse media and reduce agglomoration 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. They can support the improvement of formulations and optimisation of layering and coating processes.
Pellets based on Cellets can be filled in capsules, sachets and sticks or compressed into matrix tablets.
