From core to coating, there are many considerations when it comes to choosing the right excipients to develop and optimize a solid dosage formulation. Keeping the finished dose and target release profile in mind and understanding how material attributes influence product performance are key to mitigating risk throughout the development and manufacturing process.
This presentation introduces a new excipient from Colorcon: StarTab, directly compressible starch, providing excellent flow, moisture management and rapid disintegration while meeting the pharmacopeia monographs for pregelatinized starch. StarTab is designed specifically for direct compression and offers benefits in terms of both simplifying the formulation and processing.
