Softgel technologies are becoming an increasingly popular dosage form in both the prescription (Rx) and over-the-counter (OTC) markets. From better stability to easier swallowability, softgel formulations offer numerous benefits.
Patheon's Softgel Capabilities
Decades of experience. Capabilities spanning development through commercialization. Patheon's dedicated encapsulation facilities in High Point, NC, and Tilburg, Netherlands have the capacity to produce 10–12 billion softgels annually.
Our scientists are skilled in developing softgel formulations in early development to overcome low solubility challenges, speeding new molecules to clinic. We develop softgel formulations for late stage life cycle management as well, helping clients retain market share and maximize product lifetime value.
Development and manufacturing capabilities for specialized products include highly potent drugs, hormones, DEA-controlled substances (schedule I–III) and abuse-deterrent products.
And when existing Rx products need new revenue streams, product and brand managers can tap into Patheon’s softgel expertise and proprietary technologies for new softgel product formulations. We offer cost-effective and flexible business models ranging from fee for service, licensing of existing products and (co)-development of proof of concepts.
Patheon brings value to pharmaceutical and consumer health care companies through ideation sessions and flexible business models that can:
