Microcrystalline cellulose pellets (Cellets) are highly spherical starter pellets consisting of 100 % microcrystalline cellulose in sizes between 100 µm and 1,400 µm. They act as neutral starter cores and as multiparticulate carriers in extended release formulations of highly active or low concentrated API. Chemical inertness, high friability, high sphericity and smooth surface properties are key advantages for easy and reliable drug delivery formulations.
