CD Formulation: A Supplier of Binder Excipients for Pharmaceutical Preparation

Excipients play a remarkable role in the process of drug formulation. Binder excipients are used to improve the disintegration, bulkiness, bioavailability and dissolution rate of the drug. To make binder excipients more accessible for researchers, CD Formulation recently announced a comprehensive range of binder excipients that can be used in pharmaceutical research.

By definition, the function of binder excipients is to act as an adhesive to “bind together” powders, granules and other dry ingredients, empowering the product enough mechanical strength.

“Just like other excipients such as disintegrant or pH modifier, binders serve a specific purpose, that is, to provide sufficient cohesion for the powders which is needed in normal processing and at the same time, ensuring that the tablet will be disintegrated and the drug will be dissolved upon ingestion, thus releasing the active ingredients for absorption,” says a spokesperson from CD Formulation. “Our company has rich experience and capacity for all kinds of drug formulation projects, either for generic drugs or for innovative drugs. In addition, scientists at CD Formulation are also capable of designing formulations for poorly water-soluble molecules. Also, attempts to enhance the solubility and bioavailability of difficult-to-formulate compounds have been made.”

The binder excipients provided at CD Formulation include (just to name a few here):

Cellactose 80, KG Grade Microcrystalline Cellulose, UF Grade Microcrystalline Cellulose, Mannitol, Urea Crystals, exp Anhydrous Glycerol, exp Sucrose, Extra Pure D(-)-Fructose, Extra Pure Titanium (IV) Oxide, CD Calcium carbonate 70 (calcium carbonate-sorbitol), GR ACS Lactose Monohydrate, HPC – hydroxypropyl cellulose, Starch 400L NF, Powdered NF Corn Starch and many more.

In addition to binders, CD Formulation also offers disintegrant excipients, filler excipients, lubricant excipients, sweetener excipients, coating systems excipients, emulsifier excipients, lipid excipients, taste masking excipients, solubilizer excipients, active pharmaceutical ingredient excipients, carrier excipients,  compaction excipients, dry powder inhalation excipients as well as other types of excipients for pharmaceutical research.
