ABISORB-DC™ Co-processed Excipient System

ABISORB-DC™ is a co-processed excipient system. It allows manufacturers to make direct compression tablets with liquid lipids and other lipophilic excipients without the need for specialized equipment or processes.

ABISORB-DC™ combines the enhanced bioavailability of lipid-based drug delivery with the easy manufacturing and high throughput of direct compression tableting using standard equipment.

ABISORB-DC™ is designed to balance tablet compaction with liquid lipid absorption. It facilitates the complete absorption of both single-lipid and SEDDS systems into the excipient system whilst still being suitable for processing on industry standard tableting equipment such as granulators, mixers and rotary tablet presses. What's more, SEDDS tablets can be compacted at industry press speeds.


ABISORB-DC™ is the ideal lipid-carrying direct compression tableting system.
