MCC Spheres / Pellets / Beadlets / Granules


Microcrystalline Cellulose Spheres Neutral Spheres for sugar free products, highly soluble & controlled released formulation products.

MCC Spheres Definitions:
  • The SPRAYSPHERES™ - MS have been developed using microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) as base.
  • Microcrystalline cellulose is purifies, partly devolymerised celloulose, prepared from alpha celloulose.
  • MCC complying with Ph. Eur.
  • Manufacturing in accordance with the cGMP.
MCC Spheres General properties:
  • Nearly white hard, uniform and spherical particles. (sphericity degree average 90%)
  • Very low friability level.
  • MCC high physiochemical inertness improves the stability of the finished product.
  • Insoluble in water, absolute ethanol, acetone.
MCC Spheres Particle Size Specifications:
  • Minimum of 96% (w/w) of SPRAYSPHERES™ - MS are between the lower and the upper limits of the size stated on the label.
  • The SPRAYSPHERS™ - MS selection is obtained by the decreasing size by sieving method.
MCC Spheres Application:
  • Used as cores to be coated in the manufacture of dry pharmaceutical forms. It enables greater accuracy and consistency in drug layering and coating.
  • Suitable for non-carcinogenic products.
  • Adopted to controlled release or sustained release formulations SPRAYSPHERES™ - MS make it easy to produce spherical micro granules which has the most suitable size and dissolution profile to each specific purpose.
