  • VCAPS® ENTERIC CAPSULES

    Product VCAPS® ENTERIC CAPSULES

    Through the blend of polymer science and capsule engineering, Capsugel has developed a line of functional capsules that provides the industry with a viable alternative to achieve enteric protection and delayed release without functional (enteric) coating.

    Vcaps® Enteric Capsules is a capsule technology that simplifies drug enteric delivery implementation from early-stage development to commercial manufacturing. The pharmaceutical grades of cellulosic derivatives used in Vcaps® Enteric capsules have extensive market precedence for use in providing enteric protection. Vcaps® Enteric capsules have been evaluated in-vitro and in-vivo across a number of compounds, which has proven full compliance with relevant European, Japanese and US Pharmacopeia monographs. 
  • SPRINKLE CAPSULES

    Product SPRINKLE CAPSULES

    A NEW GENERATION OF PATIENT-CENTRIC CAPSULESConi-Snap® Sprinkle capsules are specifically designed to be easily opened by patients and care-givers, enabling them to dose the contents of the capsule in a consistent manner.
