    Ludipress® LCE

      Ludipress® LCE is a ready-to-use direct compression solution for lozenges, chewables and effervescent tablet. The white, free-flowin granulate that means quicker, easier, and more cost-effective tableting. With Ludipress® LCE, you save precious time on developing, analyzing and blending. You simply add your active ingredient, a lubricant, and compress your tablets. It is that easy.

      Ludipress® LCE means less effort, lower costs, and higher quality for lozenges, chewables, sublingual or effervescent tablets and modified release formulations. Ludipress® LCE does – in contrast to Ludipress® – not contain the disintegrant Kollidon® CL. Ludipress® LCE is therefore completely water-soluble and particularly suitable for the cost saving direct compression of processing. It enables direct compression of the majority of tablets that do not require a disintegrant. Like Ludipress®, Ludipress® LCE is a granulate that forms a homogenous mixture with the active ingredient – saving you development and analysis costs, and enabling you to quickly achieve the perfect formulation. When disintegrant Kollidon® CL is admixed, Ludipress® LCE is also suitable for all other kinds of tablets. When combined with an additional dry binder in the shape of Kollidon® VA 64, Ludipress® LCE can also be employed for high-dosage formulations.

    How direct compression with Ludipress® saves you time and money.

    • Cut development time

        With Ludipress® LCE, you can minimize the development effort associated with a new tablet. All components comply with the leading pharmacopoeias – giving you guaranteed quality from the very outset.

      Reduced process steps

        You no longer have to weigh individual components, and blend them yourself. Ludipress® LCE forms homogenous mixtures with the active ingredient with ease and speed. Simply add your active ingredient to Ludipress® LCE – its excellent flowability means quick and uniform distribution. Add your lubricant, and compress your tablets. It is as easy as that.

      The ideal mixture

        Ludipress® LCE is greater than the sum of its individual parts: It is a formulated blend of excipients, creating a high-quality, ready-to-use granulate.

      Fast release of active ingredients

        Due to the absence of the disintegrant Kollidon® CL, Ludipress® LCE is completely soluble in water.

        Although manufactured by direct compression, the tablets demonstrate exceptionally low friability.
