What are some knowledge points about Empty Hard Gelatin Capsule?

Update:05 May 2023

Empty hard gelatin capsule is a dry powder or small pellet form of a drug product that is typically dispensed in a single dose. It consists of two fabricated cylindrical shaped sections named the body and the cap.

The capsule body contains a mix of the active ingredients and any excipients. The cap is then sealed using a manual or automatic press machine.

These capsules are commonly used for filling a variety of different drug products. They provide optimal dissolution properties, are easily manufactured and are available in a wide range of shapes and sizes.
Some hard gelatin capsules are formulated to release a drug substance at a specific time in the body. They can be filled with target release pellets, as well as with powdered ingredients.

The production of hard gelatin capsules can be done on a small scale or on a larger manufacturing line. The smaller scale can be done manually, while the larger scale requires a capsule press machine.
