MCC(microcrystalline cellulosepellets are made of only microcrystalline cellulose (MCC). As critical pharmaceutic adjuvant, MCC pellets are used as cores to be coated in the manufacture of controlled-release or sustained-release formulations. It enables greater accuracy and consistency in drug layering and coating.
Appearance : White or kind of white near circular pellets.
Application: As critical pharmaceutic sugar-free core for the manufacture of sustained & controlled-release pellets.
