Roquette solutions for fillers, diluents, binders

Thanks to our wide range of fillers, diluents and binders, we can help you formulate a large variety of solid dosage forms: tablets, capsules, powders for sachets, etc.

Products particularly adapted to direct compression

Direct compression is a process that is becoming increasingly more important as it requires less drug stressing conditions than wet granulation and allows for improved productivity.

Roquette proposes a remarkable varied range of products suitable for the formulation of all types of tablets, ensuring good flowability, excellent compressibility and a specific particle size distribution to ensure uniform mixing. We offer multiple starches or starch compounds for swallowable / dispersible tablets.

PEARLITOL® FLASH mannitol-starch compound is an innovative mannitol-starch compound for orodispersible tablets.
StarLac® lactose-starch compound is a lactose-starch compound with unique tabletting properties.
LYCATAB® C multifunctional starch excipient is a multifunctional starch excipient for capsules and tablets.

Polyols with outstanding combination of chemical stability, great tasting and sugar free properties.

PEARLITOL® SD mannitol and PEARLITOL® DC mannitol are part of a comprehensive range of granulated mannitol, adapted for swallowable / chewable / oral dispersible or effervescent tablets, used in challenging or unstable formulations.

We offer also a range of directly compressible polyols, such as SweetPearl® P DC maltitol for pleasant crunchy chewable tablets, NEOSORB® XTAB sorbitol for intense tasting suckable tablets or XYLISORB® XTAB xylitol for a cooling effect.

Diluents

Diluents are inert powders acting as fillers in the formulation of tablets, capsules and powders for sachets. Roquette offers a range of both water-soluble and water-insoluble diluents that also have a disintegration function.

Starches or partially pregelatinized starches are traditional and trusted insoluble excipients, having the added function of disintegration aid: Maize starch B and extra white maize starch, Wheat starch TB, Potato starch supra NB bacterio, LYCATAB® C partially pregelatinized starch.

Highly functional polyols are appreciated for their physicochemical stability, organoleptic properties (sweetening power, cooling effect) and sugar-free, dietary benefits: NEOSORB ® sorbitol powder, PEARLITOL® mannitol powder (crystalline, granulated), SweetPearl® maltitol powder

The large range of soluble diluents includes also maltodextrins, dried glucose syrups, dextrose -monohydrate and anhydrous.

Binders for wet granulation

Wet granulation, a traditional manufacturing process, is still widely used. It is often required when the pharmaceutical form contains a high level of active ingredients.

Roquette has specifically developed pharmaceutical binders with different degrees of water solubility or dispersibility.

LYCATAB® PGS is a cold water soluble starch, ideally used in high shear equipment.

LYCATAB® DSH is a water-soluble maltodextrin binder suitable for preparation of granulation solutions or use in dry blends.
