Softgel Capsules

Softgel capsules - What are the benefits to my early stage drug development project?


Softgel capsules are a valuable dosage form option for formulation of oily, oil suspended, or oil soluble compounds. Semi-solids may even be filled into softgel capsules.


Capsules are composed of either vegetable or animal derived sources and can be filled with many excipients such as Oleic Acid, Polyethylene Glycol 400 (PEG 400), and Sorbitan.  These components may also aid in the bio-availability of the active component.


Early phase softgel capsule formulations can be scaled up to commercial scale.  In early phase studies, hand filled softgel capsules are an extremely flexible and phase appropriate formulation strategy.  Fill out the form below to request your free Whitepaper detailing the benefits of using hand filled softgel capsules in early phase drug development.
