Pharmatrans SANAQ® LS 004 co-processed Starch/Lactose excipient
Pharmatrans Sanaq now offers SANAQ® LS 004 as a co-processed excipient based on mix 15/85 of maize starch and lactose monohydrate.
LS 004 forms an ultra-uniform and highly compressible lactose excipient for tablet fillings that supports direct compression (DC) applications, aiding tablet hardness, faster disintegration, and superior flowability.
Its high bulk weight supports formulation of high weight tablets, maintained capsule fill weight using smaller dies or capsule sizes.
DICOM SANAQ® LS 004 benefits
The mix in SANAQ LS 004® is composed of lactose monohydrate (85%) and maize starch (15%) and exhibits excellent free powder flowability compared with physical mixtures in the same ratio of components that show extremely poor flow properties.
SANAQ LS 004 has an average particle size distribution (PSD) of 300 to 550 microns and is designed for direct compression providing help to improve tablet hardness and faster disintegration, independent from tablet hardness and lubricant level.
Tangible tableting benefits include:
- Uniform drug distribution
- Content uniformity
- Superior compressibility with suitable fines content
- Reduced weight variation
- Higher production rates
- Choice of higher average weight
- Robust tablets with reduced friability
