Encapsulation Tools for Rapid Product Development

Specialized capsules and encapsulation techniques can greatly simplify early drug-development studies, as well as play a critical role in meeting drug program timelines. This webinar reviews specialized capsule approaches and associated best practices, covering (1) specialized clinical-studies capsules that allow rapid preclinical assessments, double-blind studies, and flexible choice of capsule colors later in the drug development process; and (2) liquid-fill hard capsule (LFHC) technology, which enables rapid proof of concept and clinical evaluations across a wide range of challenging compounds. Xcelodose®-based powder-in-capsule / microdosing studies are also described. Representative case studies demonstrating key aspects of these technologies are discussed.
