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.
