Avicel® microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) is a purified, partially depolymerized alphacellulose excipient made by acid hydrolysis of specialty wood pulp. Avicel® MCC is most often used in tableting as a compression aid, flow aid, and filler for directly compressed tablets. Avicel® is an ideal wet granulation binder which rapidly produces robust granules that remain stable in high shear environments, enabling broad processing windows and maximizing batch to batch reproducibility.
