Capsugel® Vcaps® Plus: The New Standard in HPMC

Original Air Date: Thursday, March 28th, 11:00 AM - 12:00 Noon (EST)

Building on a history of innovation in polymer science and capsule engineering, the Capsugel® brand, now part of Lonza, offers a suite of HPMC and alternate polymer capsules for the pharmaceutical world. Polymer science and engineering have opened a new era of functional development, which offers the potential for selecting the right capsule for different APIs. 

Capsugel® Vcaps® Plus capsules represent a unique and valuable contribution: they perform like gelatin but offer additional advantages, particularly a lower moisture content, which makes them excellent for hygroscopic and moisture-sensitive drugs and manufacturing processes. HPMC capsules are inert and robust against cross-linking or the effects of extreme storage conditions. Furthermore, Vcaps® Plus capsules have equivalent performance and appearance to that of gelatin capsules, offering new possibilities to product developers around the world.
