Whitepaper: Influence of different lubricants on tabletting characteristics and dissolution behaviour
Lubricants have a far more wide-reaching impact on the characteristics of the finished tablet than merely easing their means of production. A study was carried out to investigate precisely what those effects were.
In the present study, the performance of PROSOLV® EASYtab SP was tested in four DC formulations with different model APIs. Each of the selected APIs presented a particular challenge in terms of producing tablets with suitable hardness, weight, uniformity, content uniformity and/or reliable dissolution profiles.
The rapid increase in demand for biopharmaceuticals presents manufacturers with unique challenges to ensure quality and regulatory compliance while maintaining supply and production capacity.
