Ludipress® – Enabling efficient direct tabletting
Ludipress® – a granulate that means quicker, easier, and more cost-effective tabletting. With Ludipress®, 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.
What makes Ludipress so effective?
Ludipress® is suitable for low-dosage active ingredients. The excipient is based on extensive research and development, aimed at creating excipients that enable faster, more efficient manufacturing – while delivering perfect results every time.
Ludipress® is created by a sophisticated production process. It is a unique three-in-one system, combining the strengths of three excipients: lactose as carrier and filler, binding agent Kollidon® 30, and Kollidon® CL – one of the best disintegrants on the market. Together, they form a granulate with excellent flowability, low hygroscopicity, plus outstanding binding power. This enables you to quickly and easily create homogeneous mixtures with your active ingredient, and to directly compress high-quality tablets.
|Chemical name||Lactose, povidone, crospovidone|
|CAS-No.||5989-81-1 + 9003-39-8|
|Regulatory Status||The formulated ingredients lactose monohydrate, Kollidon® 30 and Kollidon® CL correspond to the current monographs in Ph.Eur., USP/NF and JP. In addition, Ludipress® is approved by FDA and IID listed.|
|Applications||The main application is for direct compression, but is also suitable as a filler for hard gelatine capsules.|
With Ludipress®, 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.
You no longer have to weigh individual components, and blend them yourself. Ludipress® forms homogenous mixtures with the active ingredient with ease and speed. Simply add your active ingredient to Ludipress® – its excellent flowability means quick and uniform distribution. Add your lubricant, and compress your tablets. It is as easy as that.
Ludipress® is greater than the sum of its individual parts: It is a formulated blend of excipients, creating a high-quality, ready-to-use granulate.
Ludipress® is a granulate that supports direct-compression tableting, making your life much easier. And giving you peace of mind: because you know you can be sure of great results, each and every time.
Ludipress® combines the three functionalities of a filler, binder and disintegrant in a ready-to-use excipient for tabletting using the direct compression technology. Ludipress® yields tablets of low friability, even with low compression forces, and irrespective of tableting speed. Kollidon® CL, one of the most effective disintegrants around, means tablets start to disintegrate within moments – despite superb hardness.
Ludipress® yields exceptionally high-quality tablets:
