Alsiano supplies croscarmellose sodium for oral solid dosage forms such as tablets, pellets granules and capsules. Disintegrants efficiently promote the breakdown of solid dosage forms into small particles after administration to secure a rapid release of the drug and better bioavailability.
Croscarmellose sodium (CCS) is an internally cross-linked polymer of sodium carboxymethyl cellulose which is insoluble, hydrophilic, and highly absorbent due to its cross-linked nature. This results in an excipient with excellent swelling properties and its unique fibrous nature gives CCS exceptional wicking capabilities.
Acting as a rapid disintegrator in pharmaceutical and nutritional formulations for tablets, granules, and capsules, CCS improves bioavailability of formulations thanks to its supreme drug dissolution and disintegration attributes.
Free-flowing white powder, very hygroscopic.
