  • News Ashland announces Klucel™ xtend HPC matrix former for extended-release tablets

    Wilmington, Del., Oct. 3, 2022 - Ashland is introducing Klucel™ xtend hydroxypropyl cellulose (HPC) controlled release matrix former, designed to deliver unsurpassed process versatility and release profile efficiency. 
    Until now, there were limited options for managing the release profile of formulations, especially high dose, controlled release formulations. Ashland’s step change klucel™ xtend HPC has been shown to match the release profile of hypromellose controlled-release formulations at half the polymer concentration. The highly reduced polymer concentration achievable with klucel™ xtend HPC offers the possibility of smaller pills or higher dosage, if necessary. This new excipient offers unrivaled versatility across a broad range of APIs in every manufacturing process: dry granulation, wet-granulation, direct compression, and holt-melt extrusion.
  • Video Excipient Engineering and Design to Improve Processing of Oral Controlled Release Formulations

    Hydrophilic polymer matrix systems are widely used in oral controlled drug delivery because of their flexibility to obtain a desirable drug release profile, cost effectiveness, and broad regulatory acceptance.

    Hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose (HPMC) is the key matrix former used in the majority of formulations. As controlled release formulations continue to evolve, so does the need for more robust and flexible matrix forming polymers. Join this learning lab session to:
    understand key mechanistic aspects of hypromellose-enabled hydrophilic matrix tablets discover how polymer engineering results in optimized Benecel HPMC grades (new Benecel XR & XRF HPMC grades) learn about the advantages of Benecel DC Hypromellose in flow and loss-in-weight (LIW) feeding for continuous manufacturing compared to regular HPMC grades
