VIVASOL®, croscarmellose sodium, is a superdisintegrant specifically developed for manufacturing tablets and capsules. Its unique performance attributes have established VIVASOL® as a globally accepted product in the pharmaceutical and nutritional industries.
The fibrous nature of VIVASOL® possesses a wicking effect, which is responsible for rapid capillary transport into the tablet matrix. As a result, the VIVASOL® use level can remain low while still providing superior tablet disintegration properties.
JRS Pharma produces two croscarmellose sodium grades: VIVASOL® and VIVASOL® GF (GMO-Free). Their specifications and functional performances are similar.
