This combination is used to prevent or treat low blood calcium levels in people who do not get enough calcium from their diets. It may be used to treat conditions caused by low calcium levels such as osteoporosis, osteomalacia/rickets, hypoparathyroidism, and latent tetany. It may also be used in certain patients to make sure they are getting enough calcium (e.g., pregnant or postmenopausal women).
Due to its simplicity of manufacture, product stability and high efficiency, the application of Direct Compression for tableting process has increased. For Direct Compression, there is a need of directly compressible binders that exhibit adequate compressibility and flow properties. These Direct Compression Binders should be selected on the basis of their flow behavior, volume reduction under applied pressure and compression behavior, in order to have the finest binding performance. The choice and selection of these binders is very important for processing directly compressible granules.
Commonly used Directly Compressible Binders are: MCC, SMCC, Partially Pregelatinised starch, DC Lactose anhydrous, etc.
At Umang Pharmatech Pvt. Ltd., we have the capability to prepare Directly Compressible Granules of a variety of mixes over a range of mesh size, with different binders depending on the customer’s applications & requirements.
