Hard two-piece capsules: the delivery system of choice by manufacturers of pharmaceutical dosage forms for over a century.
Solid oral dosage forms (tablets and capsules, both hard and soft) are the most popular delivery option among patients, doctors and pharmaceutical companies. They are “patient-friendly”: readily portable, convenient to auto-administer, easy to swallow, stable and precise in delivering the active ingredient.
Hard two-piece capsules also offer additional advantages over tablets, mainly:
Less complex formulations, using less excipients
Possibility of combining drug products
More appropriate for hygroscopic active ingredients
Option of using two colors (for the capsule cap and body) for product marketing
More efficient product manufacturing process (reduced amount of steps), reducing validation and analytical costs
Absence of compression forces in product manufacturing
