Powder Filled Capsules

Powder-filled capsules are ideal for early-phase development, and Patheon has the expertise and resources to help you pursue proof of concept with minimum use of expensive API. Patheon's extensive experience spans the stabilization of hundreds of new chemical entities, many with challenging properties such as low bulk density and low bioavailability and solubility. We also have the capability to dose neat API in a capsule.

  • Two-piece gelatin capsules
  • Non-animal HPMC capsules
  • Wide range of sizes
  • Multiple color choices

Preclinical and Beyond

We always work with an eye towards your future success. With this approach we streamline the path from early API and formulation development all the way through commercial production. For example, we can help you achieve proof of concept with powder-filled capsules, then perform a simplified transfer to immediate release tablets with minimal formulation development to keep your project moving forward quickly.

At Patheon, science drives the development of your product, not a limited number of choices. Our customers come back to us again and again not because of contracts, but simply because we do a great job. It’s an approach that has earned Patheon trust across the industry: 19 of the top 20 pharmaceutical companies are customers, as are 8 of the top 10 specialty pharmaceutical companies and 9 of the top 10 biotech companies.

Choice, experience and commitment – they are what has made Patheon #1 globally in pharmaceutical development services.
