Capsugel® Vcaps® Plus HMPC capsules
Product News Sep 10, 2019
Building on a history of polymer science and capsule engineering, the Capsugel® brand, now part of Lonza, offers a suite of HPMC and alternate polymer capsules for the pharmaceutical world. Polymer science and engineering have opened a new era of functional development, which offers the potential for selecting the right capsule for different APIs.
Capsugel® Vcaps® Plus capsules perform like gelatin but offer additional advantages, particularly a lower moisture content, which makes them excellent for hygroscopic and moisture-sensitive drugs and manufacturing processes. HPMC capsules are inert and robust against cross-linking or the effects of extreme storage conditions.
Furthermore, Vcaps® Plus capsules have equivalent performance and appearance to that of gelatin capsules, offering new possibilities to product developers around the world.
