GLYCOLYS® has been developed and produced exclusively by Roquette for more than 30 years. The experience gained by Roquette with its GLYCOLYS® range of sodium starch glycolates has made the company a supplier of choice when help is needed to develop formulations.
Roquette offers a complete range of sodium starch glycolate products designed for your specific formulation needs:
- GLYCOLYS® LV, for high-shear granulation addition in intra granular phase.
- GLYCOLYS® Low pH, for acidic drugs.
- GLYCOLYS® is a multipurpose superdisintegrant, for all other requirements.
- EXPLOSOL® for low residual solvent requirement.
An optimized production process for ideal disintegration properties
To maximize the surface exposed to water, potato starch is the preferred raw material for GLYCOLYS® and EXPLOSOL, as its granules are relatively large. To avoid viscosity development during disintegration process which would delay drug dissolution, cross-linking is performed on the potato starch. For maximum speed of disintegration, starch’s ability to swell is significantly increased by rendering it more hydrophilic through carboxymethylation. For a maximum purity in the GLYCOLYS® products, neutralization and washing is performed.
GLYCOLYS® and EXPLOSOL® are references multipurpose superdisintegrants, well-known and widely used in the pharmaceutical industry.
When it comes to meeting the challenges of formulation, you need more than just an ingredient supplier.
