Sugar Spheres USP-NF/ Ph. Eur.
Sugar Spheres are white spherical pellets with a slight sweet taste. These are neutral pellets made of sucrose and maize starch. Contains NLT 62.5% sucrose calculated on the dry basis.Sugar Spheres are called as neutral pellets of spherical form, composed of sucrose and corn starch. They are primarily used as inert cores in capsule and tablet formulations, particularly multi-particulate sustained-release formulations. They form the base upon which a drug is coated, usually followed by a release-modifying polymer coating.
Our sugar spheres offer great mechanical strength, low friability and good flowability. Their high sphericity with a narrow particle size distribution allow for precise calculation of drug loading quantity. Sugar spheres’ range cover the whole spectrum of diameters from 125 - 2000 µm. Customized sizes of this product, to meet specific formulation needs, are also possible.
Sugar spheres are available according to USP-NF and Ph. Eur. and also available in different particle sizes like ASTM 12#16, 16#20, 18#20, 20#25, 25#30, 30#35, 35#40, 40#50 and 50#60. Customized pellets can be supplied as per the choice of the customers.
