MORE THAN A SERVICEWhen it comes to Research & Development, speed to market is vital, and executing right the first time is critical to success. Drug technology is continuously advancing, and both global regulations and complex formulations make the need for precision increasingly important.
The versatility of two-piece hard capsules allow them to be used at every step in the drug development cycle. This obviates the need to switch formulations after initial studies to other dosage forms, therefore decreasing the effort required for stability testing and validation. In the case of limited API products, capsules also reduce losses in small runs. In summary, hard capsules provide a simple way to reduce the workload during development and hence speed up the process from drug discovery, through scale-up and commercialization.
