Healthcare is essential for the welfare of animals and prevention of diseases transferred from animals to humans. JRS provides solutions for custom delivery systems and dosage forms to meet the needs of the growing global animal health industry.
ARBOCEL®, powdered cellulose, is a plant-based functional filler. Powdered cellulose is chemically inert and is, thus, not metabolized by the human body. Because it is not digested, it has no functional caloric value. It is commonly used by formulators as an alternative to lactose when designing medicine for lactose-intolerant patients. ARBOCEL®’s binding properties and natural fiber structure lead to stable tablets with low friability.
EMCOMPRESS® Calcium Phosphates are water-insoluble functional fillers for wet granulation and direct compression applications. EMCOMPRESS® offers improved flow for all powder mixtures, including poorly flowing APIs and plant extracts.
EMDEX® is a directly compressible, water-soluble tablet binder and filler. Its unique composition of 95% glucose monohydrate and different oligosaccharides derived from starch is monographed under “dextrates” in the NF. With use levels ranging from 1% to 99%, EMDEX® is designed for a variety of tablet applications.
In order to serve the unique requirements of our customers in an even more comprehensive way, we are pleased to introduce the latest addition to our portfolio, the Povidone Family: VIVAPHARM® PVP K30 (Povidone), VIVAPHARM® PVP/VA 64 (Copovidone), and VIVAPHARM® PVPP (Crospovidone).
PROSOLV® EASYtab SP is an all-in-one, ready-to-use excipient composite. It effectively combines four individual components: binder/filler, superdisintegrant, glidant, and lubricant. Developed using JRS Pharma's proven PROSOLV® Technology, it is the first lubricated high functionality excipient on the market.
PROSOLV® ODT G2 is a high functionality excipient for orally disintegrating tablet formulation, development, and manufacture. It provides the functional performance needed for today’s orally disintegrating tablet formulation challenges and offers a creamy, smooth, cool mouth feel.
Over 20 years ago, JRS PHARMA developed a new and innovative excipient, PROSOLV® SMCC (silicified microcrystalline cellulose), to alleviate some of the known deficiencies of conventional binders including: low bulk density, poor flow, loss of compatibility, stickiness issues, and sensitivity to lubricants. PROSOLV® SMCC not only addresses these challenges, but also offers enhanced performance.
PRUV®, Sodium Stearyl Fumarate, is a tablet lubricant specifically designed for formulations in which other lubricants lead to formulation and/or manufacturing challenges. As opposed to magnesium stearate, it offers advantages including: high degree of API compatibility, robustness to over-lubrication, no adverse effect on bioavailability, and improved appearance of effervescent solutions.
VIVAPHARM® PVP/VA 64 is the ultimate tablet binder for all processing technologies. It can be used in direct compression, wet granulation, and dry granulation, as well as in hot melt extrusion for poorly soluble drug actives with low bioavailability.
VIVAPHARM® PVP K30 is the classic wet binder with optimal balance between adhesive strength and ease of handling. It has excellent solubility in water and a range of organic solvents, and is supplied as a free-flowing powder with spherical particle morphology. This ensures rapid dispersibility and ultimate flexibility in the solvent of choice.
VIVAPHARM® PVPP, Crospovidone, is unsurpassed in its performance and versatility as a superdisintegrant in formulations. It combines different mechanisms to achieve rapid tablet disintegration at low concentrations (1-5%).
VIVAPUR® MCG is a free flowing powder consisting of microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) and sodium carboxymethyl cellulose (Na-CMC). It can be used as a suspending agent, emulsifier, opacifier,and thickener for: oral suspensions, veterinary drenches, sprays, reconstitutable powders, creams, gels, and lotions.
