Powder-Filled Capsules

Preclinical and beyond

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.

Powder-filled capsules at Patheon

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

At Patheon, we always work with an eye towards your future. With this approach we streamline the path from early 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.

We give you access to the widest range of formulation methods and choices because we are not tied to any proprietary technologies. At Patheon, science drives the development of your optimal formulation; and when your discovery becomes a product you'll never pay us a royalty. With no rigid contracts, our customers come back to us again and again simply because we do a great job. This has earned Patheon trust across the industry: 19 of the top 20 pharmaceutical companies are clients, as are 5 of the top 10 specialty pharmaceutical companies and 6 of the top 10 biotech companies.

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