Solutions for challenges formulations

Pharmaceutical companies encounter various challenges while working with new and varied formulations. This requires careful selection of the type of capsules with the right attributes for drug delivery.

Attributes like solubility, moisture, disintegration, cross-linking potential, uniform dissolution at different pH levels etc., are key to a successfully finished formulation.

ACGcaps HA plant-based capsules, supports such varied demands of the pharmaceutical industry for non-animal origin, fast-dissolving, providing dissolution uniformity including for sensitive molecules that need to achieve the desired dissolution in 0.01N HCl.

The capsules display better suitability for hygroscopic and moisture-sensitive ingredients. They are chemically stable, have reduced risk of brittleness, and hence are more resistant to breaking and cracking even at low relative humidity, an ideal option for encapsulation.

These capsules with high quality and high aesthetic appeal having excellent machinability would assist pharmaceutical customers to offer reliable products to the market.

The raw materials used are of high quality and are regulatory compliant and ACGcaps HA matches the pharmacopoeia requirements for capsules. They also meet global cultural requirements being Halal and Kosher certified along with Vegetarian Society and Vegan approved. The capsules are preservative, gluten- and allergen-free and are non-GMO verified.
