by Sonu Kumar Singh Digital Marketing Expert

We know that medicines and supplements are available in tablet as well as the capsule forms. If the formulation has to be given in capsule form then you need to choose the right type of capsule shell. The shell of the capsules can be made from different materials. Now which material needs to be selected will depend on the formulation.

A look at the type of capsules:

The capsules can be broadly divided into two types. That is hard filled capsules and liquid filled capsules. Now the hard filled capsules can be hard gelatine capsules and hard HPMC. Liquid capsules are further divided into hard capsules and soft gel capsules. The hard capsules are further divided into gelatine and HPMC capsules.

In the case of hard capsules collagenous material that has been obtained by hydrolysis is used. The gelatin that is used needs to be obtained from natural sources and must be totally safe for consumption. In the case of highly reactive molecules HPMC capsule is used. HPMC stands for hydroxypropyl methylcellulose or hypromellose. Those products that are sensitive to moisture it is always better to make use of HPMC. One of the best things about HPMC is that it is not obtained from animals. It does not have a high risk of contamination with organisms like bovine spongiform encephalopathy. These can be used for pharma products, herbal products as well as for supplements.

There are a number of other materials that can be used in the manufacture of capsules. Take the example of Pullulan capsules. In this case Tapioca is fermented into Pullulan. In the case of non-soluble materials Polyvinl acetate (PVA) capsules is used. Soft gelatine capsules will have softer shells and they may contain a preservative.

Capsule Customization is very much possible:

When you need to order for capsule shells it does not mean that you have to buy whatever size and dimensions are available. You can easily get customised products. You only need to give the correct details to the manufacturer. That is you need to specify the dimensions, the colour and all the other details that you need. The best manufacture will make sure that he provides the customised capsules to you.

In order to get the best quality capsules it is important to select the best manufacturer. Always opt for one who has years of experience in this fielded. You can check with people for reviews about the different capsule manufacturers in India and then choose the one who can give you good quality products. But yes you also need to keep the costing in mind. But not to worry when you choose the best manufacturer who has state of the art facilities and one who handles bulk orders you can be rest assured that they will give you the most competitive pricing without making any compromises with the quality of the products. Depending on the formulation you need to choose the right capsule shell. In order to get the right product make sure that you give the correct specifications.
